Leupold expanded its line of thermal optics to include the new LTO Quest, adding new capabilities beyond those found in the company's initial LTO Tracker.

"Leupold works closely with hunters to develop products to help them be more effective in the field," said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "The LTO Quest gives hunters a pocket-sized tool to help recover game that may otherwise have been lost."

The new LTO Quest thermal imager features a 2.4-inch 15-hertz LCD display that provides precise temperature readings of all objects scanned within a 20-degree field of view in front of the optic. The maximum detection range for the Quest is 300 yards.

Other features of the new LTO Quest thermal optic include the ability to take and store up to 2,000 images on the device, allowing users to record their experiences with the imager. The unit includes eight different color filters that provide different levels of clarity and perspective, depending on a user's situation or personal preferences.

In addition, the device features a built-in flashlight that produces a maximum output of 300 lumens, ensuring that hunters and trackers can make their way through the underbrush with little issue. The Quest uses a USB-rechargeable battery that provides a total run time of 4 hours. The USB can also be used to download images from the unit.

The Quest is designed to assist hunters in tracking game, but the device can be used to examine large areas of land at night in a search for intruders or lost individuals. The unit can also be used as a valuable tool to examine the heat efficiency of buildings or other mechanical devices. The suggested retail price on the new Leupold LTO Quest is $649.
