Santa came;-))

Finally upgraded the scope, I have been contemplating this for the past two years. The trusty Nikon 82mm will be gathering dust for the foreseeable future. Now I have the all new Swarovski ATX 85mm should be the 95mm but Conns Cameras in Dublin just sold the last 95mm. So they gave me their demo 85mm hope to get the 95 in a couple of weeks. Also got the TLS-APO camera lens which with a T2 Micro 4/3 Camera Adapter ring fits on the Lumix GH2. Went for a test run on New Years Day and got probable the best shot I have every got of the Foster's Tern. The image through the scope is so bright and crisp it made taking a photo a little easier. I have not used a scope with a zoom eyepiece before and this new feature for me has the wow factor. Just love the whole setup.
