HikMicro Stellar SH50 Thermal Image Scope.

The Stellar Thermal Rifle Scope delivers the renowned, high-quality HikMicro Thermal image in a traditional Rifle Scope chassis for the very, first time. Available in options, SH35 / SH50 and the Pro models SQ35 / SQ50

The Stellar has been developed with a sleek, ergonomic design to put all of the major controls within easy reach. The innovative jog dial makes it easy to adjust the magnification and access the menu – while the three buttons on the eyepiece provide the user with access to key features such as video recording and standby mode. The Stellar uses a conventional 30mm tube Rifle Scope chassis allowing you to attach it to your Rifle using standard scope rings. This makes it easy to mount and achieve the perfect eye relief while also maintaining the traditional appearance of your Rifle.

HikMicro Stellar SH50

At the heart of the Stellar SH50 – 50mm is the HikMicro 384 x 288px Thermal sensor with sub-35mk NETD. This pairs with the high quality 50mm lens system to deliver a highly detailed image with 3.8x magnification and up to 2600m detection distance. In addition to the 3.8x base magnification, the Stellar offers up to 8x digital magnification providing the Scope with a magnification range from 3.8 – 30x.

Outstanding Runtime

Power is provided from two internal lithium batteries which provide an outstanding 15 hours of run time. There is an additional battery compartment that accepts a removable CR123A battery. This is designed as an emergency backup and provides an additional 1 hour of runtime. The Stellar also introduces recoil activated recording so you can automatically capture the important parts of your shooting trips on video using the 64GB internal storage. The Stellar series is also fitted with a microphone to capture sound with your videos. Zeroing has been simplified with the inclusion of freeze-frame and magnification during setup with your Rifle. Advanced software provides up to 5 zeroing profiles allowing you to use the Stellar on multiple Rifles.

Under the cap that traditionally houses the windage adjustment, you will find a USB-C port that allows you to transfer data and recharge the Scope. This also allows you to power the Stellar from an external USB power bank.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

Use the inbuilt Wi-Fi to connect to the HIKMICRO Sight app and stream, record and control the Stellar from your phone, tablet or another mobile device. You can stream in real-time to share your hunting experience with a friend. The app also gives you access to all of the major controls like colour palettes, magnification, brightness and contrast. This makes it very easy for the user to configure the Stellar to match their preferred Thermal image.
