  • Lovely images with great color. Hibiscus blossoms are great photo subjects. I especially like the last shot. LPA
  • Created discussion thread Scissortailed Flycatchers
    These beauties soon will be gathering for their migration south so I wanted to share a few shots taken this morning with my K3ii+AFA1.4x+DA*300. They have been cropped for composition and ...
  • 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

  • Earlier I posted some BIFs I shot using his combo. Here are a few static shots taken with it. I always use TAv mode so I can set aperture and shutter and let the K3 determine ISO. The K3 family ...
  • Thanks everyone. The Avocets were shot in Quivera NWR in Kansas. The others were shot in Fort Collins, Co. Here is a link to many of the images I got on that trip: http://www.audubondallas.org/foru ...
  • Created discussion thread Some K3ii BIFs
    Haven't contributed anything here for a while so I thought I'd post a few BIFs shot using my K3ii+AFA1.4x+DA*300 handheld. American Avocet: apparently I had stopped too close to some nesting ...
  • Created discussion thread Leo Triplet and M81-82
    It's getting to be galaxy season in the northern hemisphere with many targets in the Ursa Major - Leo - Virgo area. I shot these Saturday night at our dark site in OK. Unfortunately clouds rolled ...
  • Thanks and thanks for the wonderful example for all of us about getting out into the natural world. I hope to be as active as you when the number 8 is the first digit of my age. One of the saddest ...
