    hi may be not really on topics but could you say me if the NATO ID cards is valid in USA for own ???[/b]
    U.S. military ID cards are good to go in other countries and passports aren't needed if you're stationed there or if it's a port visit, but if it's a private visit I don't know what the story is. It's my guess you'd need a passport if you're coming here alone.

    Pretty recently a Russian Destroyer visited the local Maritime Academy and they didn't have passports, but they came here as a unit and as an approved port visit by our government. I'd ask a travel agency.

            Reb,

            Along this same track. What would be your thoughts on long periods (daylight) on the scope for eye strain/headaches, eye fatigue. Somewhere in the 8-12 hour range with no breaks.

            I know sunglasses are a must, but would the polarizer or the objective reducer additionally help or detract?

            Just wondering,

              I don't think it makes any difference what you do to a scope, if you are really looking through it for 8-12 hours continuously, never ever taking your eye away from the eyepiece, I think you're gonna have eyestrain. Doing the things you mention will postpone it, but that's a damn long time to have to be on a scope with absolutely no kind of break.

              Cheers,

                I know with glasses it helps considerably and assists in reducing all 3 of the effects you mentioned. Not sure on magnified optics.

                The reduction in glare, very commonly reduces squinting, which leads to headaches and eye fatigue quite rapidly. The other thing is if your Sunglasses are polorized, you don't want a polorized filter (I think) If I remember this would occude vision totally?? I forget what the result was but you can't see squat if I remember.

                  CelticRaven:

                  I think you are absolutely correct about not wanting polarized sunglasses and a polaraized filter on your scope. I use a polarizing filter on my camera, and depending how the filter is set, I either get a line through the eyepiece or can't see anything at all, when wearing my polarized sunglasses.


                  I have never looked through a scope for 8 to 12 hours, but I know keeping both eyes open, and not squinting helps reduce eyestrain.

                    It's been 10 years since I worked in the optical industry.... so trying to remember why that was... but yeah it causes stuff like you mention.
