First time taking out my new spotting scope.
Not too bad, but very windy on the cape.
So only during calm moments
did I get a clear sighting.
As well, tried the adapter with my cellphone.
I could zoom on the cell as well,
so got in pretty close.
I will have to try in a different environment,
or on a windless day, if that exists.
The Cormorants were out in great form as usual.
