Horukuru,

I seriously wish we lived a bit closer. Would love to get in the field with you and both our systems. After taking a look at your photos I am sure I could pick up a few pointers from you. Here is what I recently got in San Diego, CA with the EDG 85mm ST Fieldscope and the FSA-L2.

Boy, that would be great. I will always keep that in mind, but for the interim I will be pointing people your way if they want to see more examples of this great digiscoping system and your photos) Thanks so much for posting.

Best,
Mike

Wow some of those shots are pretty good.

I have tried to get in flight shots with my Digiscoping but nothing has been as well executed as yours.

Thanks for posting, very interesting to follow.

Hi,

I must say these flight shots are impressive. May I ask what shutter speed you have used?

Tord,

The Rhinoceros Hornbill is 1/800s, Black-winged Stilt 1/1600s and the Eurasian Teal is 1/1250s

I used Auto ISO from 400 - 1600

Hi Jason,

your shots are impressive. Do you do this with the scope/camera combo always mounted on a tripod or freehand, too?

Lovely shots on a great combo Jason.

I'm just wondering whether the Kowa lens-scope's fixed focal length adapters are any better optically compared to the zoomable FSA-L2 adapter for Nikon's EDG85 (as per this thread http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=191758).

Of course, the FSA-L2 is an all-in-one solution for different focal lengths as it can zoom between 590 to 1750mm.

Any comments?

Hio Hor,

I never try the new Kowa except for a brief last year at British Bird Fair.

No one has it here in my place unfortunately.
