Non contact thermometer emissivity correction

All cheaper non-contact thermometers are set to an given emissivity value , generally e = 0.9 or there abouts. This is OK for measure the temperature of enabled oven surfaces and bakeware. but not so flash for bits of bark, branches, bits of rock, bedding, and water.

There are tables of emissivities for different material surfaces available online, I personally refer to my Perry's Chem Engr's HB and my Furnace Engineering Reference books and my CRC HB of Physics & Chemistry.
This table is handy too

To get the correct temperature when the emissivity is set poorly this is how you correct for the emissivity :,

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
