Default Sighting in a thermal scope

I recently bought an ATN ThOR. 320 4.5x 60hz scope. Does anyone know the best way to sight it in?

Nope. The first dumb idea that popped into my head was to put a candle in front of a bullseye target. I am curious as to what the correct way to do this is.

Try using the standard splatter tagets. Before you put up the target keep it under your shirt to warm it up. The colder the ambient temp the better it will display.

Hand warmers, hot water bottle or frozen water bottle. Anything with a significant difference in temp should work
oppo and Silver-Bolt like this.

Pork chop either frozen or cooked still hot.

Hand warmers sounds like a good idea. Thanks for all the help.
