I'm real it's beautiful out.
Girl with auburn hair glboobses, wool hat who likes Mashrou' We writeed briefly when you asked me a question, and I commented on something you were buying. Seeking to hangout wiht a military boy. Hi there. My style has nothing to do with cruelty or disrespectquite the opposite in fact. Can anyone help me. Maybe we can ad some excitement.
Spotting scopes are an important tool for hunting. Gear that weighs too much can take the joy out of hunting and make it real work. The idea is to find quality equipment that is smaller and lighter but that still performs the needed job adequately. Last hunting season I had the pleasure of testing two micro spotting scopes from Opticron: Both are extremely small and lightweight spotting scopes with the MM3 50ED being the smaller of the two with a 50mm objective.
Comparing gives a good baseline for what you could see with a bigger, heavier optic. The SDL v2 is a nicer eyepiece it costs more and it has noticeably more field of view on the highest power on both scope bodies. Both Opticron eyepieces had substantially better eye relief than the Vortex. On the Vortex you have to put your eye in the scope.
Additionally, the eyepieces moved easily to change magnification. FOCUS One of the best features of the Opticron MM3 spotting scopes are the position and manner in which you focus the spotting scope and the fact that it has a micro adjustment for focus. On the MM3, a light finger touch will move the focus without moving the scope. There are two focus wheels, one adjusts the focus quickly, and the other makes micro adjustments for a perfect focus.
In my opinion, this focus setup is what you want. It has a rubber armor coating that seems to do a good job of protecting the scope body. Opticron makes a case.
I need to get one. Other than a few marks on the eyepieces, they still look brand new. Opticron immediately shipped me out a new one. I chose to test angled body spotting scopes as I think they are easier to use in the mountains with extreme angles and with a shorter, lighter tripod. This comes down to my personal preference and there are those who would disagree. The tripod mount is attached to the body with a ring that allows the scope body to rotate and lock at a number of different angles.
You can adjust this so that you can shoot a rifle prone and still look through the spotting scope at the same time.
The 60mm objective, by my calculations, gave me about 3 more minutes at dusk. The same level of detail would have been present 3 minutes earlier with the 50mm. In broad daylight, you really could not tell a difference between the two scopes when compared at the same magnification.
They were both excellent. The 50mm wins here in both size and weight. The 50mm body is just 8 inches long and weighs 21 ounces without an eyepiece. The 60mm is 10 inches long and weighs 26 ounces without an eyepiece.
Both of them had good glass to the edges with a minimal amount of chromatic aberration. Additionally, the scope is bright and useable all the way through the power range. The warranty is transferable but the new owner needs proof of purchase and needs to register with Opticron. Opticron is a UK based company that has over 40 years of experience in the optics industry. They have a U. They have a good reputation among bird watchers around the world and are just beginning to get into the U. The resolution and low light performance between them are very similar and are too close for me to call.
All of them performed better than the Leupold. Using the Opticron MM3 during the hunting season, my hunting partner and I were able to successfully judge deer and elk from great distances without spending the time to get closer.

Jackson, and Dorothy Ann-Pathfinder.

As much as you like We will be updating the site and asking for volunteers to help move, create and maintain content. Knowledge of Wordpress or Photoshop would be helpful. News Page Port Reports We are seeking reporters to send in daily activity summaries from the following ports: As much as you like Our automated Vessel passage is a long-term project and we are now moving out of the testing phase.
This system uses data from our AIS system to automatically log vessel passages for a given location. We plan on having every port with AIS coverage included by next season.
Because this is an automated system we need volunteers to help with verifying data and entering cargo information. You could help out once a week or once a day, our hope is to get a strong group of volunteers to help keep the additional information accurate and up to date. Now through the spring: One time install, with occasional reboots We would like to expand the AIS receivers to better fill some of the gaps in the system.
If you would like to host a receiver please e-mail, all that is needed is a location close to the water with an always on Internet connection and area to mount a small antenna. Note to ports and commercial operators: We can add your location that you can embed a map or passage listing, for example http: Silver Bay, MN Seaway. We will do our best to keep all volunteers up to date on the redesign process.

The free event will be 9 a.
Michelson said the event started with a small trailer that was barely adequate to get a sound from the steam whistles. The largest whistles are more than 6 feet of gleaming brass weighing about pounds, and getting a deep roar out of them is an equally gargantuan effort.
Michelson said the big whistles will use 20 gallons of water per minute in the form of pressurized steam. The boiler will burn through about gallons of fuel oil on Saturday and will use close to 2, gallons of water. To lure various museums and collectors to bring relevant whistles to St. Clair, those of course being the ships that would have passed up and down the St.
We have a huge whistle that comes from the Fort Leavenworth Kansas Penitentiary. Many people had the opportunity to take a cruise as part of their senior trip.

Michelson is the narrator and whistle operator for the event, which will be in the traffic turnout at the north end of the park. But there will be opportunities for members of the public to let off a little steam. Whistles on the Water will also provide free ear protection, a necessity when some of the whistles are loud enough to shake the ground.
