vehicle mounted Thermal camera systems for Mammal watching
Hello, does somebody has experience in thermal cameras that can be mounted on cars for mammalwatching. I found on the internet this one, but expensive (ROVIR 640 19mm Vehicle Mounted Thermal PTZ System) : https://www.ultimatenightvision.com/ROVIR-640-19mm-p/rovir-0619.htm
This looks fantastic, but i dont know if there exist same types for lower budget ?
Also i found a much cheaper system : https://nightride.io/products/nightride-x?variant=31472396238891
(Night ride x), but it looks that it directions can not be changed. But here i found a hunters revieuw of it : https://shwat.com/nightride-thermal-review/
Maybe there exist other systems, so if anybody knows the best for mammalwatching, i like to hear the info.
I like to use it additional with a handheld thermal camera.

I know some of the guys in Australia do this – and I think just mount a regular handheld scope.
Here are some threads that might be useful in case you didn’t see them.
