  • Replied in Bird ID please
    I agree, it's quite fun as well as interesting to get a closer look at which species frequent around here. Is that app "iNaturalist" by any chance? I love that app, pokemon go for grown ups. I'm in ...
  • Replied in Bird ID please
    No problem! I use Google Lens to identify my own if I'm not sure, mostly I get a match. Those are nice photos by the way, I've just gotten a long tele and started doing birds as well. There's lots ...
  • Replied in Bird ID please
    Could this be it? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chestnut-backed_chickadee
  • Some shots as I mentioned I would provide from today's testing, nothing special but for me it turned out quite decent. A lot better than I've had before. Certain images needed quite a bit of ISO ...
  • Added 8 photos to their gallery

  • Created discussion thread AF fine tuning
    I've never seen the need to fine tune any of my lenses, lately after getting several second hand ones I've been unsure and started testing them more to see if it's actually needed or not. During ...
  • Dang it, hadn't thought of that. Oh well, maybe the missus will make a custom one! Or I could bring the tripod, the large bean bag/flower bed idea is tempting though..
  • Thanks everyone for the informative and helpful posts! I agree with what's been said here, and I don't really see any problems with my photos related to any lens/camera malfunction (except for the ...
  • Just wanted to add that I did some testing today, I might be able to upload some examples tonight. Pretty dull overcast and limited light - but I got some fairly decent shots with AFC 9 points. In ...
  • Created discussion thread Lens / Camera service
    Just how often do you hand in your gear for service/professional cleaning? I've had my D800 for about 2.5 years now and never had it serviced, if I've noticed dust on my sensor a little session ...
  • Took my Diaplan out to shoot some dew originally, but ended up in the flower garden. Some shots I made (All shot on my D800):
  • That's not a problem, turns out I didn't get around to check up on my post myself! I've not done any personal button settings, but I think it's already set up like that. I've just grown accustomed ...
  • The rear lens is supposed to protrude outwards, so I don't think you already have a modded lens. I'm not familiar with using these on ASP-C, besides knowing that the swirly bokeh isn't really ...
  • Thanks for replying everyone, so far I've only browsed the cheaper ones and the LU versions popped up alongside a 135mm as well. Made me curious about them, but I suppose I won't be getting any of ...
  • Replied in Lunar Eclipse
    Thanks for the reply! That's quite good news then, a "quick and dirty" alignment with a compass should do in that case. Only worry I have is how my Star Adventurer would handle the Nikkor 200-500mm ...
  • If I succeed in getting the MF 3.5 I will, the 105mm DC should be arriving in a few days. I fully expect it to be a marvelous lens for general use just like the 135mm DC is supposed to be. As far ...
  • Replied in Lunar Eclipse
    Silly question as I haven't tried lunar tracking before, only deep sky objects, how about polar alignment for this sort of tracking. Does it need to be just as precise, seeing as exposures are ...
  • Replied in Lunar Eclipse
    That's great, I had clouds when I went to bed but still set my alarm to go off at 03:45 at night. Needless to say, though I was hardly able to turn off my alarm in my sleepy state of mind, I did ...
  • Created discussion thread Vivitar enlarger lenses
    I've done some googling now to find more on how these perform as macro lenses, but I haven't figured out much. I've seen various ones available on Ebay (50mm, 75mm, 135mm). Are these complete ...
