I have been absent for a bit.

Been playing around with more BigHorn Sheep digiscoping.


The terrain is terrible, getting close canbe difficult.

I have been getting some decent result though.


All these photos and video were taken with a Canon DSLR, using a TLS APO adapter, through a Swarovski ATX 95 scope.


This has been one of my recent favorites.

If you look close, you can see a mosquito on his nose. I love the texture in the hair on his body as well.





I have been shooting mostly video. That is why there is less in the form of photographs.

I have decided I need to imporve my video shooting skills.

This is one of those videos that shows why we digiscope.

Very long distance, no other way for a normal person to get this footage.

As you can see, my video needs some work.

I have found that I prefer to shoot video when I am a long ways off.

As I get closer, I like to take my photographs. The photos are better when you can get close enough to capture the fine details. Video is much easier and smoother, at longer distances.


Camera movement is a major issue when trying to video at close range. 

The high magnification of the scope makes moving the tripod head very violent. Much less of an issue at longer range, where the scope does not have to move as far.

Anyways, that is what I have been up to.

I hope to get out this next week a lot. Do some serious digiscoping.
