"I work at Lizard Lope and do most of the night hog hunting. Out of the box the Night Optics Panther 336 Thermal Weapon Sight is hands-down better than the FLIR RS64. It has a better picture quality and the resolution seems equal.
The FLIR riflescope picture has too much bloom even after adjusting the settings. The night optics scope is also more user friendly and one can quickly get used to the controls. This is especially good since it is used mostly in total darkness."

The Panther 336 Thermal Riflescope is a no-nonsense, purpose built shooting system for those who are serious about Infrared performance and quality!We've taken our time to engineer what we believe is a massive step forward in the crowd of thermal riflescopes available today.
Panther 336 is deceptively lightweight and easy to use. The high grade 50mm germanium objective features an optical focus adjustment knob similar to those found on our industry leading D-7 series night vision riflescopes. A high resolution 600H x 800W display with selectable auto or manual brightness control delivers impressive, crisp images at each digital magnification level. Button layout was one of the mostimportant aspects in developing the Panther riflescope. We believe that the shooters experience while using the system should be simple, yet intuitive. With certain buttons designed with tactile elements the user can easily distinguish what button is being pressed without looking.
The absolute most important feature that sets the Panther Riflescope apart from the rest is the ultra simplistic and minimalist system menu. Taking queues from users of other thermal riflescopes as well as our first generation TS Series riflescopes, our engineers were able to create, what we think is the best menu system out there. It doesn't need to be that difficult! The menu screen consists of 3 options. From those options the user can adjust windage and elevation, color palette, reticle type and color as well as automatic shutter and brightness control. By removing fluff and confusion, menu selections can be made on-the-fly without hassle. We will continue to refine the menu firmware over time, making it even better and even more useful.
The Panther riflescope utilizes 2 3v CR123 batteries which deliver more than 4 hrs of continuous use. A durable flip-up cap protects the sensitive germanium optics, while a soft rubber eye cup provides substantial comfort and eye relief.
The Panther 336 thermal riflescope is proudly hand-built and tested in the United States!
