Which Infrared Thermometer displays spot outline?


I can't remember which brand of IR Thermometer has a "laser pointer" that "brackets" the sensing area with a circle of dots instead of just a single spot in the middle of thw area. Anyone know which brand this is?

- Thanks

If you find it, post the model. I have a 2yr old laser spot model that includes a chart showing how much area is captured vs distance.
These tools have since mine, gotten so cheap that I don't know how much of a premium such a feature would be worth.

OK, found a $199.00 Omega 30:1 with the circle dot pattern:

$ 259.00 50:1

Whether that is a "reasonable" price is in the eye of the beholder.
