Hi Forest Guy...

I was lucky enough to spend a night using another members flir and I have to say they certainly do make the bush a level playing field at night. Although we only saw wildlife that evening I was astounded by the vision of wallaby/kangaroo as they grazed through the subject area unaware of our presence. Clear as crystal, highlighted against the surrounding environment. I could go on about the 'greatness'... I want one! but alas I'm told retail 8-10K for the one I was using. Not happening. The SKY NET goggles sound great as a budget alternative. Very cool. I wonder if it will take a bigger SD card? I'm wary of IR now though :) I think perhaps it would be like standing in the bush with an infrared 'torch' on your head which I'm sure they can see. Not terribly stealthy. Anyway FG I'll start buying lotto tickets its the only way I could afford a flir :D
