Re: OT/ No wonder we can\'t find Bin Laden!

1. Is Bush using binacoculars or a Night Vision Device?
2. Binoculars=lense caps off.
3. Night Vision Devices=lens caps on, during the day!

Me, I don't know which is correct...but I vote that the President was using a NVD and did right!

You'd think one of those 2 Army zeros would have caught it *BEFORE* they handed him the thing. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: OT/ No wonder we can\'t find Bin Laden!

Those look like a nice set of nightvision binoculars. You leave the caps on during the day to keep from blinding yourself. Most likely there is a set of holes in the center of the caps to let a tiny amount of light through. Also, I believe those are range finding.....there looks to be a small port between the objectives. Sure would be nice for hunting season!

Re: OT/ No wonder we can\'t find Bin Laden!

sorry about the hole,

its in the covers for when it's night and your in close courters, so the light beam doesn't blind you when refracting back, got a cheap pair. if you stand in your house in the dark without the caps on the light will actually reflect the beam back through the eye peice, strong enough to do damage.

Re: OT/ No wonder we can\'t find Bin Laden!

...or it could be as simple as the camera man catching him right as he realized that the caps were on and that he is about to remove them.

I don't think they're night vision, since the army wouldn't be using, nor give the Commander in Chief, a cheap set of night vision that couldn't cope. They would hand him a nice set of glasses with range finders and simply forgot.
