Spy glass galore

Thinking associatively about espionage, after the last post, I realized how (quietly) optically dependent the web culture has become. And I am not talking about eyeglasses. Several of my friends are into birdwatching. Our firm's president has a powerful telescope trained on the ships in the harbor. My girlfriend's husband has an array of laser finders and binoculars, and, of course, three or four interchangeable scopes for his pet rifle - a good reason that my girlfriend is a hunting widow for about three weeks out of a year. As a result of dust storms on Mars and other celestial phenomena, the guys at the office have bought telescopes, which save them from Monday night football and Skyping on the sly from their wives. To watch our chief paralegal's handicapped parking spot for him, we used opera binoculars. But that did not perform in the dark, and we went shopping for a night vision binocs. There was an additional incentive, which the guys whispered about, and it was a pencil skirt-wearer in the office suite facing our windows. Binocular section at Optics Planet has them - they are digital night vision, and they are great for us women making our way through the poorly lit parking lot. This one looks exotic, but I am sure sees well in the dark. is the web’s cornucopia of optics and hobby related products. On the lighter note, summer is here and my coworkers are considering the possibilities – all the fun that people can have with the optics. One-stop shopping at can equip someone with riflescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, night vision, telescopes, rangefinders, laser sights, flashlights, tripods, radar guns, digital camera binoculars. They also carry the industry’s best brands like Leupold, Nikon, EOTech, Burris, Bushnell, Celestron, Tasco, ATN, Bolle, Serengeti and Pelican. They also have an impressive selection of tactical gear (Leupold Riflescopes, Bushnell Rifle scopes, EOTech Sights, Burris Riflescopes and a fine selection of Blackhawk Tactical Gear). I learned a lot about night vision, and there is a lot more to learn just by browsing the site, about hobbies and gear for any trip. They offer Free UPS Shipping on most orders.
