I see you have also got the MC-20 now. How do you feel the two compare optically? I think I preferred the pictures you posted with the 2x TC better, but you may have refined your lighting or stacking technique. Can you use either of them (withought the diopters) handheld?

Thanks Mark. I had hoped to be able to spend a lot of time there while we were anticipating the isolation, but in the end the rules here have been a lot more strict than I had anticipated. My garden at my house is very small, but I have planted quite a lot of the right food plants and we don't use p...

Fun in the sun before the lockdown

Here are some pictures from my last trip up the Magaliesburg before the lockdown.

I really like these photos! I suspect that with normal techniques quite a few of them would have had quite distracting backgrounds. While not the answer to every situation, stacking is clearly a great tool with which to keep the whole of what you want sharp sharp, and isolate that from the backgroun...

Environmental butterfly photos

I hope the moderators will allow this first photo. I know it's not macro, but I certainly had to get closer for this shot than I normally do for my normal macro type shots. I have started to feel that one could get the impression from my pictures that I spend much of my time in lush, "tropical" plac...
