Thermal imaging devices have come a long way over the last 20 years in terms of affordability and availability. Organizations like ATN have truly made thermal and day/night digital scopes affordable for the average man and their latest thermal monocular, the ODIN LT 320 is shaping up to be a great handy little tool for spotting animals for hunting or just keeping an eye on your property at night.

The monocular stands out because of one particularly unique and useful feature – the addition of a small dovetail rail section for mounting to a swing arm for a helmet. With this ability, it can be used as a hands-free thermal monocular. The ODIN LT is also available in a few different models including options for either 3-6x or 4-8x magnification.
I have used some of ATN’s thermals before to do some nighttime hunting and I found that when the optic has been set up properly, it is a dream to use. Additionally, ATN has a whole host of other thermal imaging products that can link up with their Obsidian 4 mobile app which allows you to keep track of other members of your hunting party, change crosshair and color modes as well as capture video and images directly from your device.
