    OK, Let me have it :) Gear is Nikon V1 with the 10-30mm lens on a Nikon ED82, 30mm e/p It's uncropped @ 1386mm (I think) and no post-processing Main problem was I didn't have a remote or cable-release, so I got very few worth keeping. https://flic.kr/p/oaSAEh

    Angled or Straight...but what if

    Nikon could produce an adjustable one that could be either straight or angled? Now, I'd like to know why this is not possible and if it is, why there aren't any already :)

    Nikon 1 V1 and SKywatcher 80ED

    Can someone give some guidance using the SW80ED as a prime on the V1 (Paul, I mistakenly asked you about attaching a compact - it's the V1 I have) I do have some bits and pieces for attaching a Nikon D5000 to the SW scope if that helps (bought, but not used - long story) Cheers Marco

    Adapters for Nikon V1, ED50 and SW80ED

It would be very expensive to buy a DSA-N1 and a 27x DS but I like the simple 'fixed' nature of that setup and don't really want to get...

    Nikon D5000 and lens for macrophotography
