The Streamlight TLR-2 and TLR-2s are noteworthy for being an integrated unit. Many handguns do not have room for multiple optics, and you are left deciding between a weapon light, a laser sight or even a red dot sight. With the TLR-2, you have a powerful 135 lumens (160 for the TLR-2s) Streamlight flashlight and a high-powered aiming laser sight all in the same package. The brightness of the light can blind and disorient a threat, and if that fails the laser sight will be there to aid you in making sure you neutralize said threat. For home security, you must be prepared for any situation.
Shock-proof, dust-proof, water resistant, almost indestructible, the Streamlight TLR-2 is built to last. You can expect 2.5 hours of continuous running time with the light and laser active, and up to 45 hours of runtime for the laser sight only on a set of CR123A lithium batteries (free through Sept 30, 2010!) Streamlight also provides a "No Excuses" limited lifetime warranty and stands behind its work. This unit fits most handguns with rails, and also most long guns with Picatinny (1913) rails. Rated 4.8/5 with over 120 reviews, customers RAVE about this weapon light/laser sight combo. The TLR-2s strobe function is also highly regarded- if you are looking for another method of disorienting a target the strobe function comes highly recommended.

I will not argue that the Steiner 7x30 Navigator Pro Marine Binoculars would have alerted Columbus to the fact that he was not going to be partying in Calcutta on this voyage, but they sure would have been helpful. These waterproof bionculars also come with an integrated magnetic compass, which I am told can be quite handy when on the water. Steiner quality is reflected in the durability and performance of these compact binoculars and as with any other Steiner Binoculars as OpticsPlanet is an Authorized Dealer, you benefit from the full manufacturer warranty available!
The exclusive Steiner Sports Auto Focus system, once configured to meet the specifications of your eyes, delivers a incredible field of view of 20 yards to infinity. You can easily pan across the water to take in whatever is around you. Look there! It's a dolphin! And over there- it's a whale, playfully blowing his spout. Wait, what's that? Pirates- sound the alarm! Man the cannons!
You most likely will not be sailing on a 17th century battleship, but whether kayaking, fishing, sailing, or whatever recreational water activity you are engaged in, the performance is just what you need. Advanced anti-haze "CAT" optics block glare (always a major issue on the high seas) but also maximize brightness. A vertical/horizontal range finding mil reticle is built-in to help you determine the distance from a harbor, pier, lighthouse, buoy, other boat, or anything else you see.
There's no reason to have any other pair of binoculars for your maritime activities. And with a $30 Steiner Rebate available for this product, now is truly the best time to buy. Visit OpticsPlanet for great deals on binoculars and many other products!
We're rapidly approaching our 10th anniversary here (you heard that right- 10 years!) and preparations are buzzing about. Between that and the rapidly approaching holidays, projects are stacking up and the coffee machine buzzes later and later every day.
Recently, we got a fun little opportunity to make a video about the Yahoo! Merchant Summit. American Express is sponsoring a contest where the video that gets the most views will win, and naturally- we want to win! We'd really appreciate if you checked it out and helped us, and as an added bonus there is a 10% off any $50 order available in the video description on YouTube.
One of the things we've always been proud of at OpticsPlanet is that we aren't just a company, we're part of a community. We are active in our biggest segments, such as hunting, birding, and astronomy, and we are also rapidly expanding our OpticsPlanet Cares program that supports noteworthy charities focusing on humanitarian efforts, education, and HEROES (military, law enforcement, emergency personnel.)
In addition to that though, we also try and engage with the business and technology community whenever we can. We regularly send people to conferences and expos such as:
- Yahoo! Merchant Summit
- SES Conference & Expo
- Internet Retailer Conference & Expo
- SHOT Show
- ... and so many other events, both large and small.
We also try to engage with people on forums, both on our site and off-site, and offer help in any way we can. Many of our employees are members on interest forums, and they post there to help and advise, not make a sale. This is because we truly believe that we should make any community we are involved in stronger, for the good of everyone in that community. We also have employees (like me!) that have made guest posts on sites such as SEOMoz to help business owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs excel and reach their goals.
As an organization, we always strive to help as much as we can. While we can't help everyone, we try our best everyday to make a difference. We look forward to sharing more of our 10th Anniversary news soon!
When you are purchasing top of the line optics, be it from Swarovski or any other top brand, you cannot skimp on the accessories that make the experience. Would you buy cheap $80 tires for your luxury car? You would absolutely not- the performance of a car can be limited by the tires that are the point of contact to the road. So why would you use a cheap, flimsy tripod for your top-shelf Swarovski spotting scope?
Tripods are necessary when using spotting scopes because the high magnification amplifies every movement, every quiver, every shake. A top quality tripod will keep your spotting scope firmly locked in and secure, while also allowing for precision adjustments so that you can keep your subject in view. The Swarovski CT 101 Carbon Fiber Tripod Kit offers carbon fiber/basalt composite construction making the legs of this tripod extremely strong, resilient, and steady. This allows for frequent and intensive use, and these materials also make the tripod incredibly lightweight at only about 3 pounds. In conjunction with the soft neoprene shoulder strap and carrying strap, you can easily and comfortably take this tripod anywhere you go and enjoy the break-taking views your spotting scope provide.
The tripod head on the Swarovski CT 101 Carbon Fiber Tripod is stable and practical, with a five-tooth locking system to make sure your spotting scope is firmly held in place, secure and protected from unwanted displacement. You can easily pan and tilt smoothly and efficiently to make sure you always have your subject in clear view. And with a digital camera and digiscoping setup, the Swarovski CT101 Tripod has the stability you need to produce a perfect picture every time.
Upgrade your tripod today with the Swarovski CT101 Carbon Fiber Tripod Kit and get the most from your high-end spotting scope. Available at OpticsPlanet, your source for Authentic Swarovski Optiks.
With a dual eye/tube setup and two high quality Gen 1+ light intensifier tubes, you can utilize these night vision goggles in even the lowest of moonlight situations, or even with no moonlight available in conjunction with the powerful IR emitter. While the performance of any night vision device increases directly related to the amount of light available (a full moon with no clouds will be the best situation to use your night vision binoculars) with the two Gen 1+ light intensifier tubes and the built-in IR emitter, you will still be able to use the ATN Night Cougar Binoculars in any situation.
With the face mount, you can utilize these goggles hands-free comfortably. The 1x magnification means you can walk around with these NV binoculars and not become disoriented because everything will appear in a 1:1 ratio. This is extremely important, because moving around while using binoculars or goggles with magnification can cause you to become dizzy, or even trip or get injured due to not having a full field of view. A focus distance of 1m to infinity means these ATN Night Vision binoculars are great for home security, spotting for predators, camping, or just enjoying the beauty of nature at night.
For all your night vision needs, you know the ultimate source: Optics Planet. Many orders over $29.95 qualify for free ground shipping in addition to our already low, low prices- you can't beat that!

The Cuddeback Trail Camera you hear the most about these days is the Cuddeback Capture Trail Camera IR 1132 that uses infra-red illumination, as opposed to a startling flash, to take pictures at night and in extreme low light conditions. With a fast trigger speed of 1/3rd a second, and IR technology you won't be scaring any animals- and the images are conveniently stored on an SD card for you to view later on your digital camera or computer.
The Cuddeback Capture Digital Trail Camera 1125 offers many of the same features as the Capture 1132, but does not have the IR capabilities. Instead you get a much lower price- which nobody can really complain about. Some people think you only need one trail camera, but you can gain a lot of information to using multiple trail cameras to monitor different paths, trails, and areas. At such an affordable price, the Capture Trail Camera 1125 makes an excellent addition to your arsenal of scouting cameras.
The Cuddeback CuddeView X2 is the accessory that makes your entire experience complete. Once you've set up your trail cameras and they've been running for a while, you'll undoubtedly want to check out the photographs stored on their memory. With the Cuddeback CuddeView X2 you can easily go from camera to camera, popping in the memory card and quickly accessing the photos your trail cameras have been snapping. You can also easily transfer photos to a second SD memory card.
