The Pulsar Core Thermal Imaging Attachment is supplied with an eyepiece for use as a hand-held monocular, and a Pulsar Cover-Ring Adapter for fixing to the front of a daylight riflescope.

The image is presented on a state-of-the-art OLED Sapphire Microdisplay, which produces an exceptionally clear green image, with fully adjustable brightness and contrast, and is more than twice as energy efficient as standard OLED displays.

When used as a hand-held spotter, the Pulsar Core can detect a 0.5mx1.7m object at 1200m (FXQ38) or 1500m (FXQ50), and when fitted to a riflescope, detection range is controlled by magnification and riflescope type and quality. The Pulsar Core fits most high quality riflescopes with objective lenses from 40mm - 56mm, and is supplied with one Pulsar Cover-ring Adapter. Choose adapter size based upon your riflescope's objective lens diameter. Extra Cover-ring Adapters are available for fitting the Core to multiple rifles.

A very useful feature of the Core is its ability to fine-tune point-of-impact. This ensures better long range performance, and enables the shooter to set a custom reticle setting when the Core is fitted, without the need to alter the daylight riflescope, such as for using sub sonic loads and reduced night-time distances.
