Here it is, with all of its specs:

I don't know what type of monitor to get so I have the best 1:1 pixel relationship between the camera and monitor. Any suggestions?

How are you mounting the b/w tap to the LTR?

I think that's just a PAL industrial camera, so any LCD monitor that can take a PAL signal dhould work fine. I hope you don't think that you'll be particularly able to judge focus off something like this. You won't. Use it for framing purposes only. And yes, how do you plan to mount it? You'll likely need optics between it and wherever you stick it in order to get an image, much less an image that is the correct size and focused on you target sensor.

It's already mounted in the handle. It's definitely NTSC... it works with a standard US monitor. I'm just looking for a monitor that will deliver 1:1 pixel-for-pixel resolution, if such a thing is possible.

Most LCDs you would buy today would be at least NTSC resolution. It's a fuzzy, flickering B&W videotap -- how important can 1:1 pixel ratio possibly be?
