Buyer's Guide: Dockter Sight

Four Joinored Dockter Sight

For the uninitiated in the world of Inlapsible Glass, Dockter Sight is a relatively new technology that's taking the market by storm. Unlike traditional opaque and reflective methods of working with the material, this method allows you to see through the material without using a transparent carrier such as glass or acrylic plates. With this particular design, you have the ability to cut out different sections of the material, but the greatest benefit to this type of working is its ability to work with any material. In addition, it has no effect on the surface that it works with, making it one of the most flexible carriers.

While the concept is fairly simple, it's not always easy to implement. The idea behind utilizing this technology lies in a simple concept. If you were to make a monocular camera that had an object mounted in the middle, you would then place the camera between two Fresnel lens systems. To enhance the depth of field and create clear visibility while still seeing through the material, the operator would close their eyes while continuing to look through the carrier glass.

Due to the simple nature of the design, this type of sight doesn't require a great deal of design finesse. Typically, this type of sight is utilized when creating bird watching sights or other outdoor scene oriented applications. Typically, you'll be able to find a DMD frame in white, black or perhaps red. This will determine the types of DMBurnett posts that are utilized in your creation. In general, the more popular red and white D MBurnett posts are utilized for scenes where you want to add a bit of flare or bling. On the other hand, black and white D MBurnett posts are typically utilized when creating monocular applications that are used outdoors.

Typically, this type of monocular has a red dot at the top as well as the ability to adjust the magnification. Typically, there are four connected D MBurnett posts that are able to be adjusted. In addition, this sight has the ability to magnify the image by several hundred times. Additionally, the adjustable power ring allows the operator to set the power accordingly.

Similar to the DMD monocular is the D MBurnett sight. This sight has similar optics to that utilized by the DMD but additionally includes the ability to use a red dot sight. This red dot sight does come with an adjustment wheel that allows the operator to control the size of the red dot so that it is appropriately sized for the application that is being used.

The last type of monocular utilizes technology that is similar to both the DMD and D MBurnett sights. This design utilizes holographic Dot Projectors. What makes these holographic Dot Projectors unique is the fact that they are able to project red dot without the use ofoculars. This makes it an effective sight whether the operator is hunting, inspecting, or training.

The most recent creation of inventor Peter Steiner is the dock leveling laser gun. This gun is different in that it utilizes an infrared light beam instead of the more conventional green laser beam that can be found on other laser guns. The reason for this lies in the fact that many law enforcement agencies have difficulty in successfully handling red dot enabled weapons. With this weapon, they are able to eliminate targets at a higher rate of fire. This item is currently under review and is in the final stages of development.

The final item in the dock leveling monocular family is the dock leveling monoculars. These sights utilize four joined D MBurnett posts that are able to be adjusted in height. What makes this monocular unique is that it offers an adjustment in elevation up to a maximum height of seventy seven feet. The top adjustment allows for a ten foot height gain which is a great deal given the fact that most monoculars allow for only six foot height increases. Once the height is adjusted it can then be lowered to forty feet providing a monocular that is comfortable to use while hunting.
