HikMicro Stellar SQ50 Thermal Image Scope.

The Stellar SQ50 thermal vision sight is the latest product on the market from HikMicro. Excellent quality of the displayed image and a high detection range, all enclosed in a housing based on a traditional telescope. An excellent combination that allows you to maintain the traditional aesthetics of the telescope on the rifle, using the latest available technology.

The HikMicro Stellar SQ50 thermal vision sight is based on an advanced 640 × 512 sensor with a pixel size of 12 μm and a sensitivity of less than 35 mK. The high-quality OLED display with a resolution of 1024 × 768 used in the viewfinder guarantees a very clear, contrasting and clear image. The telescope has a lens with a diameter of 50 mm and a constant magnification of 2.3x which is fully useful when shooting at medium distances and a detection range of up to 2,600 meters. The digital zoom has a maximum value of 8x and, in addition, the Picture to Picture mode thanks to which an approximate image in a separate area of ​​the display and at the same time preserves the possibility of observing the terrain. The sight is closed in a shock-resistant up to 1,000 G body made of anodized aluminium, modelled on a classic telescope with a 30mm tube diameter, which allows for trouble-free mounting on a weapon.

Stellar SQ50 has advanced and user-friendly software installed. Navigating the interface is intuitive thanks to the use of large, comfortable and silent buttons on the housing. Among the interesting functions, it is worth mentioning a wide range of crosses that can be adjusted to each other in terms of shape and colour. Zeroing has also been simplified by enabling Freeze Frame and Zoom when setting up with a rifle. The software provides the ability to save up to 5 zero profiles so that you can use the Stellar SQ50 on multiple rifles.

The Stellar SQ50 can boast an extremely long working time. The viewfinder has an integrated battery but also uses replaceable CR123A batteries. The external battery has priority on energy consumption and after its discharge, the device automatically switches to the integrated battery. This allows you to quickly replace the battery without having to turn the device off. Under the top cover, there is a USB-C port that allows you to transfer data, charge the battery and, if necessary, you can also connect a power bank, which further increases the working time.

The Stellar SQ50 viewfinder also introduces a recoil-activated recording function so you can automatically capture the most important moments while hunting. The video is recorded with sound and saved with snapshots on the built-in 64 GB memory. The device also has a Wi-Fi hotspot function, thanks to which we can update the software and pair with a smartphone, tablet or any mobile device using the dedicated HIKMICRO Sight application. The application allows real-time image streaming to the screen of e.g. a smartphone. It also allows you to manually configure the viewfinder and all major elements such as the colour palette, magnification, brightness, contrast etc.
