  • Created discussion thread Owl time with the K3ii
    During tonight's walk just before sunset with a heavy cloud cover I found a Barred Owl on his hunting perch. This owl must be the male of a local pair because the female should already be in their ...
  • I goofed: I used the 1.4xAFA, not a 1.7x, for those shots. LPA

    I don't know if you are still reading replies to this thread, but if so, I have a few suggestions about how to handle situations like you have experienced. You may be new to this forum, but there ...

    Thanks. These were shot hand-held with SR on. The only time I use a tripod is when I'm shooting owls after sunset. Otherwise, SR handles this combo just fine. LPA
  • Created discussion thread Still delivering after all these years
    I'm just about to celebrate 8 years since I purchased the wonderful DA*300. It has been on K5, K3, and K3II bodies and I have trusted it to deliver almost all of my bird and wildlife images to ...
  • Lovely images with great color. Hibiscus blossoms are great photo subjects. I especially like the last shot. LPA
  • Created discussion thread Scissortailed Flycatchers

  • Replied in Prominences
    Here are shots processed to show the prominences that were visible during totality. They were taken just before and just after third contact using the same gear as the corona shot I posted earlier. LPA
  • Here is one of mine processed to show the corona. Note the magnetic field lines visible in the corona. The prominences that were visible on the sun's limb are over-exposed in this image to bring ...
  • Created discussion thread Getting ready for Monday
    I tested my gear today to make sure everything is ready for the eclipse Monday. Camera: Pentax K3II, Lens: Televue 85 scope + 0.8x FR/FF (480 mm, f/5.6) + solar filter, Mount: iOptron CEM60 The ...
  • I use a K3ii with my telescope, a 130 mm refractor, and an intervalometer for taking multiple subframes. Another drain on battery life is using LV for focusing. I use a Bahtinov mask for focus and ...

    Dan, Thanks. I don't post larger images, but the first and last hawk shots were cropped to 1500x1200 before down-sizing so these are almost full resolution. LPA
