25.01.18 Update:  2017 has been a great year with the Pulsar Trail being the dominant thermal riflescope in Australia, unfortunately that has meant backorders for the whole year except for December. Fortunately 2018 is starting better. Due to an upgrade of order by a large customer we have a Trail XP50 available for immediate delivery. We also now have, after wrangling some US bound stock, Trail XQ50 available at the end of January.

The Pulsar Trail Thermal Imaging Scope has great capability on your rifle and adds internal recording and wifi output!  Pair the Trail - any model from the XP50, XQ50, XP38 through to the XQ38 - with your phone or notepad for a larger screen. Tremendous for law enforcement, vermin control, herd management, conservation or hunting the Pulsar Trail models cover a wide range of thermal imaging requirements. The image quality of the Pulsar Trail thermal scopes has proven to be amazing, hard to believe how good on the Trail XP, and they have the proven Pulsar Thermal durability and quality. What surprised us as being useful was the wifi and recording. The wifi is great if with a partner, they can view what you are seeing on your Trail  on their phone, seeing exactly what you are seeing in real time. No more trying to regain sight picture when changing operators on the thermal scope.

Internal recording on the Pulsar Trail is great for showing property owners what is actually on their property and also for them to share with adjoining properties. There is nothing like a video to prove what is happening or what feral pests are where! For Police and Law Enforcement the recording is even more valuable. The Pulsar Trail riflescopes build on all the well known Pulsar Thermal capabilities then add the best of todays technology.

Which Pulsar Trail to choose? If you prefer wide fields of view for say pigs at close quarters the Trail XQ38 and Trail XP38 are a great choice, if you would like to look at foxes or wild dogs at distance then the Trail XQ50 would possibly suit. If you want both wide fields of view and great image quality at distance then the Trail XP50 would be a perfect choice of thermal riflescope for you.

If you are a land owner or professional shooter the new Pulsar Trail thermal scopes are - as one new Trail thermal owner described to us - a game changer. When you are walk or drive into a paddock or the bush you know where every living thing is straight away, it is just so much more time efficient. In the old days you would set up in a paddock and whistle in or observe for a period to see what was there. Even after being there for an hour you never really knew if something was there and got your scent or observed you - or that really there was no feral pests there. Night vision improved that situation immensely, but still you were faced with the situation if you couldn't see the problem animals in the daytime or under a strong light, say pigs in wheat or foxes in long grass, then your night vision couldn't see them either. Then early thermal scopes came along which allowed you to see shapely blobs of anything with a heat signature, even through long grass - what a change! There was no hiding now. Then with the latest generation like the Pulsar Trail scopes you can get good identification close and heat signatures out to 1800 metres. This allows you to go to a paddock and with a number of stops know quickly what is in it, great if you have a lot of territory to cover or would just like to sleep at some stage after working all day. Real efficiency and a genuine game changer.


   Best Image Definition

A heat sink located on the Pulsar Trail's body, prevents heat build-up from the Thermal Image Sensor and other components while also significantly reducing temperature and noise sensitivity, especially between calibrations. This enhances image sensitivity and quality on your Pulsar Trail and applies equally to the XP Trail and XQ Trail, both 38 and 50 models.


  Variable Magnification

The Pulsar Trail models (XP & XQ) include variable magnification and feature both 2x step-up and smooth, even, graduated magnification for a truly optimum, customized field of view for you.


  High Refresh Rate

The Pulsar Trail XQ and XP features a high refresh rate of 50hz which provides quality viewing of moving subjects.


  Mobile device operation with live internet streaming and remote control

One of the big features of the Pulsar Trail Thermal imaging scope is the ability to link via wifi with Android and IOS based mobile devices using the free app 'Stream Vision'. This enables you to recieve video in real time, to operate the Trail thermal imaging scope with your smartphone or tablet and well as stream video to Youtube.


Video Recording Built In

The Pulsar Trail has the ability to record thermal images or thermal video on it's built in video recorder. This can be then sent to your PC or laptop via a wired connection or wifi.


  Detection distance up to 1800 m

Depending on your individual model, Pulsar Trail thermal imaging scopes can detect big-game-size heat signatures up to 1800 meters away.


  Stadiametric rangefinder

Based on the estimated heights of viewed objects, the stadiametric rangefinding reticle makes determining distances with your Pulsar Trail fast, easy, reliable and repeatable.


  Quick-change B-Pack power units

The Pulsar Trail includes a progressive autonomous B-Pack power supply consisting of a quickly detachable, rechargeable IPS5, 5.2A-h battery pack designed to deliver over 8 hours of Trail Thermal Scope operation on maximum mode. Higher powered IPS10 battery packs, as well as CR123A and AA battery cases, also are available and provide a perfect out in the bushpower solution. These batteries work equally well with your Pulsar Trail thermals scopes - all models including XP50, XP38, XQ50 and XQ38 - and also with your Pulsar Helion thermal spotting scopes.


  Fully waterproof

With the Pulsar Trail Thermal scope rated at IPX7 waterproof protection it ensures your Pulsar Trail performs perfectly in wet weather, even during intense rain, snowfall and submersion in 1 metre of water for up to 30 min. (IEC 60529).


  Wide range of operating temperatures

With a frost resistant AMOLED display, the Pulsar Trail thermal imaging scope is designed to deliver perfect performances at an extreme temperature range of  -25° ... +50°С.


  User friendly interface

The Pulsar Trail is designed to be easy to use. A lot of client feedback has resulted in the most friendly interface to date, complete with an easy to read, icon driven, alpha numeric status bar at the bottom of the display. Internal menu items and options are also displayed on a contrasting gradient substrate so you can keep an eye on settings without losing sight of your objective. We want it to be straightforward to use your new Trail thermal scope, not a task like learning to reprogram a computer.


  Display off mode

During short periods of inactivity of your Pulsar Trail and before use to provide  better concealment, Display Off powers down the display without interrupting any other functions. Using Display Off means you have a much faster restart time of your Trail thermal scope when you need it most.

  Updatable software

For your initial setup and ongoing updates, the iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision App will ensure that the most recent Pulsar Trail thermal scope software versions are available to your thermal scope. There has been an update in late 2017 and early 2018 with all devices are eligible for this. We also have hardware which isn't yet enabled, the microphone is an example of this and we expect to enable it in the next software release.


  Fully functional wireless control (optional)

The  Pulsar Trail wireless remote control, with it's encoder wheel, puts the complete range of the Pulsar Trail's capabilities at your fingertips for comfortable, convenient, remote operation.

Almost perfection

By: on 12 December 2017
The XP50 is my second thermal rifle scope and by far and away the best. Everything is good about this, the quality is easily the best thermal I have ever seen and I looked at everything I could when I was choosing this one. The battery lasts a all night, the phone app works well and the recording works. I had a different brand before and would easily give this scope 10 out of 10, only thing which would make it better would be being cheaper. You almost feel guilty how good it is when you are using it. Almost.

Game Changer

By: on 7 December 2017
Recently got a Trail XQ50 and it is a game changer. Part of our property is half an hours drive away, so we spend less time eradicating pests there. Also when we get there we never really new what was around, now with the Trail we know within minutes after arriving. It has easily made us tenfold more effective and cant recommend the scope highly enough.

Yes it's true

Everything you have read or seen in the videos is right - I am sure you have read them all like I did. Absolutely fantastic scope and compares very, very well with some my friends own. Could not be happier. Thank you Glenn for getting me one of the first in Australia.
