TMB 80mm Scope
18-55 AF-s Nikkor DX
This is a shot of the 620mm fl 80mm OD TMB telescope for astronomical use. The Canon EOS 20DA has a 2" Canon bayonet fitting with a screw in IR blocker, as the DA ie A for astro, has not got an IR blocker so that it is more effective for astro photography. The mount is my own home made alt az on a Cooke, Troughton & Simms surveyors tripod.

This little feller sat a spell posed a bit and went off. Just for me.

I was sitting at my patio table about 12 feet away, and this little chap was quite happy to put up with the fill in flash.
