Hummer in slomo

These are so quick I thought the slomo mode on my iPhone 6 would give me a better view of the action!  Hummingbird Hawk-moth, The Lodge, 9th July 2015

My current digiscoping setup

My digiscoping set-up - July 2015

Not much in the way of words with this post - but I thought I'd add some shots of my current digiscoping set up.  It is the Panasonic GX7, 20mm f.1.7mm lens, Swarovski DCA adapter, and a 46mm-52mm stepping ring.

What you can see on the bottom image is a custom machined sleeve which screws on to the eyepiece mount of the 30x eyepiece.  This then replaces the Swaro sleeve I've got which only attaches to the zoom eyepieces.  The sleeve was created for me by SRB-Griturn of Dunstable and cost around 40 quid.  I'm very pleased with the results I get out of this setup - far better than any digiscoping camera I've used before, and approaching DSLR in quality - take a look at my Flickr album here.

The Wood Storks eye

Wood Stork
This is perhaps my favorite shot from Florida earlier this year.  I just can't stop looking at that eye!  I have to admit though, I've processed the image poorly, so I may go back and have another go at it sometime.

Wood Stork, Gatorland, Florida, January 2015.  Digiscoped with a Nikon V1, Swarovski ATS 80 HD and 25-50x eyepiece.
