In search of longer reach

In the UK you can pay £7000 for a Nikon 600 F4

I can't justify that as a non-professional and I only need this focal length for bird watching photography

However I have treated myself, for general bird watching, to the Swarovski

Spotting Scope ATX-95

I've now bought the Camera Adapter DCB II Camera base

Rather than use a 'point and shoot' camera, I have configured it with the

Sony -QX100

f1.8 20 Mpixel 18-100 Carl Zeiss lens

The software allows you to manage the QX100 from your iPhone OR from your iPad

Early experiments are encouraging and I'll post again once I've interesting images to share
