..an even better and cheaper way to do that, is use an IR webcam,
also allows bonuses like pix 'n videos online.  IR webcam recipes:

..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B36MGZVhpq8 shows how 
to view gasification in IR etc at a safe distance... ;o)

..IME IR modded webcams see heat down to about 220oC/495K/430oF, 
and if you can feel significant heat from a gasifier, you need
significant IR or grey filtering to avoid the big white-out.

..violet, blue etc gas flames are also fun in UV.  

..pin hole lenses gives raw UVIR light, plastic and glass lenses
filter away some UV light.  If you go UVIR, visible light is only 
about 40% of the light into the sensor, UV is say 5% and IR 55%.

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
