  • OK I'm no expert but I believe that most common adapters to fit old manual lenses onto modern mirrorless bodies would not have the aperture operation lever (especially if it's a different lens ...
  • Created photo thread ducklings
    Hi I snapped these ducklings last year as they stopped to drink out of a puddle. Just thought I'd share and listen to those  aaahh's  :-) Thanks for looking, Rod
  • I also hear this is the case, I tried it with a couple of my M lenses and the more the lens was stopped down the further off the exposure was, so I believe it. The other option is to not turn the ...
  • No problem at all, I used an eyepiece tube with a C-mount, and C to Q-mount adapter :-)
  • Hi, thanks for the comments. I have an eyepiece tube with a C-mount on it, and then I fit a C-mount to Q-mount adapter. Cheers, Rod
  • Yes there is a Pentax K to Pentax Q adapter. But I didn't use it for this shot! I have a Q to C-mount adapter and the C-mount adapter fits directly into the eyepiece tube of my telescope. Thanks ...

  • Created photo thread Moon pics

  • OK I invited that one :-)
  • Thanks everybody for looking and the comments :-) I used Baader solar film by the way, a home-made filter. I plan to get a full diameter glass solar filter for the scope soon, and try that, hoping ...
  • Haha yes it's been a rare view recently ! I took these in the spring though before the dreary period that has set in :-) thanks for looking and the comments, Rod

    Thanks all for looking. I did think it was a shame the bar from the gate was behind my daughter's wrist, I could have tried cloning it out but I didn't bother in the end. Cheers, Rod
  • impressive moth :-) and good shooting too. I watched a bunch of hawk moths whilst on holiday in the summer, fascinating . . got some shots too which I haven't processed yet but will post some on ...
