Thermals are god awful expensive. I tell people where the night vision ends in pricing is where the thermals begin. They've come out with some pretty reasonably priced units lately, relatively speaking. Still looking at 3-4k but much better than the 10+ they normally seem to run.
In my case I got in a one hell of a lucky deal. I'm a member on another forum and one of the guys there bought out all of the cores a manufacturer had recently discontinued. He then made thermal units and priced them "too good to pass up" for the members who got ahold of him. First come first serve. I was in the last dozen or so to get one.
Its an older unit but therms is therms you know? You can see some video of it here...
