Product Description

With the power of First Mate II, you can see at night like never before. Use it on any vessel or even around the house – these handheld thermal night vision cameras run off batteries and display their video on a built-in screen. The First Mate II provides go-anywhere thermal imaging for clear vision in total darkness, and through smoke and light fog. Since it’s not permanently mounted to your vessel, you can take it anywhere. So stay out a little longer, even when everyone else is scurrying for the dock, and enjoy your time on the water.
