Dan's recent activity

  • Yeah I was trying to say since the lens isn't so long at 150 mm I won't need the mount whereas if I have my TV85 at 600 mm I think I might want it.  Just so I don't have to worry about following ...
  • Neat shot hindsite. Have you tried catching the ISS crossing the sun or moon? Next week it should go right over the center of the moon if I drive a bit...which I am planning on doing.  I won't have ...
  • Bob and Jim - both of those facts are really cool.  I've seen folks feeding them by hand with the little feeders...that would be so cool. Really neat they let you know when they've returned and ...
  • Nice shot Jim...hopefully the little fella and a few more come back from time to time. Dan :)
  • Very cool Thom. Dan
  • Don't know what you mean by $$$ filter but I did purchase two Thousand Oaks solar filters.  One for my TV85 refractor and another for my 40-150 f2.8 Olympus lens. In my opinion money well spent and ...
  • Where did you get the pricing for the OM-D E-M1? Your new price is lower than it's best price...and if you can get that camera new at the price you list I'd say that's the one to get by far.  BTW I ...
  • Nice shots Rob.  Some great corona images for sure.  Bummer about the focus drift.  I was a tad worried about the camera on the TV but I tightened it's screws just to not even finger tight and ...
  • No I am thinking I would use my adapter with the Nikon...I used to have a 300f4 AFS and it worked fine with the adapter and manually focus with the OM-D E-M1 Mk 1. Though I could be pressed into ...
  • Oh MY! I've seen photos of folks feeding hummingbirds with little sugar "thimbles" but nothing like this before. Yeah the black birds / ravens at amusement parks are even not tame enough to take it ...
  • I don't do too much photographing with the TV85 but am thinking I'm going to do quite a bit more with it.  Just need to get it out and give it a try here and there. In all honesty up to the eclipse ...
  • wow Guy that's crazy...I am interested in your thoughts the first time you fed the bird. For instance will he let me get this close, is he really that lazy, etc...obviously after you fed him a few ...
  • Nice seeing your 300 mm shots.  Next time around I might need to get something of that length to go along with the TV85.  This time I used my 40 - 150 2.8 at 150 and it was ok but I think a little ...
  • Very nice! Congrats to you. Dan :)
  • I picked up the third specifically for eclipse shooting and will probably have something new by the time the next eclipse in the US comes around! Would be an interesting poll if we could put in the ...
  • Vlad really nice shots and nice to see your surroundings also! With the crowd you had there did anyone set of fireworks or honk some horns during totality? Even in a residential town in Missouri we ...
  • Really nice individuals and like the way you have your composite set up.  Are you going to get a print...if the answer is NO change it to YES.  And if it's a YES I agree! :) Dan
  • Really nice! Dan :)
  • Yeah 4 minutes will feel like a life time...tons of time to try a few more things. I'd say take a little journey toward the path and your time will go up pretty quickly...it will be good to have a ...
  • Great shots that second is what I was hoping to get...nice corona and the prominence. Congraats...Dan :)
