Taking with a Nikkor 800 5.6 ED-IF AIS and a D3. I stopped down to F8 which I rarely do , but I wanted to get both birds in focus. As it was they ended up on the same focal plane. This was at minimum focus. Lens/camera mounted on a Wimberly and a Carbon fiber gitzo tripod.

Taken with Nikkor 800 5.6 ED-IF AIS with TC14C on a D3 Hand held while panning at 1/250 second. I didn't have time to set up my tripod when I saw this bird coming from the corner of my eye. Not the sharpest image but Ill take it.

Taken with with a Nikkor 800 5.6 ED-IF AIS and TC 301-TC14C-TC14B converters with tubes in between. Mounted on Wimberly and gitzo tripod shot a a D3 cable release. I took this little fellow from my balcony . I wouldn't normally use three teleconverters on my 800 mm but it was fun to do and I think the results are not to bad. the effective focal length would be 800mm x 2 x 1.4 x 1.4 = long :biggrin:

It would be focal lenght 3136mm and F/22? Not that friendly but it seems to work.

Great shots, I'm glad to see these exotic old lenses getting some use.

How come NikkorAis isn't posting these directly?

Thanks for the kind words one and all. And thanks again to Peter for posting for me. If you have the time up load a couple more in this thread if you want:biggrin:. I feel so computer illiterate. Still making the transition from analog to the digital world. With Peter's help it has been great to share some of my capture's to the Nikon cafe. Iv enjoyed looking at many of the the members captures and words of wisdom over the last couple of years and Im glad to be able to share.

How about a shot of your biceps, NikkorAIS? :biggrin:

Lots of good stuff in here, and I'm always happy to see more cat shots with big glass.:smile: Hope you can post more soon, one way or another.

Nancy: Bicept photo coming. By the way, I lock my arm when I use big glass, so maybe you want to see my whole arm:tongue:.

I bought them all used mostly from www.keh.com . A couple from Japan and a couple from cafe members. Thats just most of my telephoto collection. I havnt shot all my gear for a while. Maybe Ill take a decent shot of all my glass tonight. I'll send to Peter later if he is willing to post.

Thanks again for posting for me Peter. Any left? I forget how many I sent.

Glass bling. I like it. I just had a meeting with my Web Designer and the process is in motion for my web site. And up loading my photo's to Smug mug /flicker. While there I got to try/Play with a Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR and a Nikkor 28-80 2.8 Beast. Pretty fun. Im lost when it comes to AF shooting(Menu's framing . I think I'll with stick with my Nikkor AIS for now. But It was fun to try for a couple hours. I lined up a trip to mexico to photograph birds as well. All in all, a pretty good day.

Sorry for the crappy shots of the Nikkor Tele's on my friends bed sheet. I was moving and didn't put to much effort into that one. Like I said Ill try to "display" my catch in a more suitable and ascetic composition. If I get inspired I might even dig out my pocket wizards and umbrella's. Anyways, thanks for looking.

Gregory
