Where I typically see these little beauties, they are really tough to get to. These shots were taken from a looooong ways away and cropped lots.

Kinda neat though as I usually don't find them hovering anywhere in range for a shot...especially when it's raining!

Jim,

Considering the distance and the amount of cropping, these are still amazingly well exposed, and very sharp. Looks like your problem may be solved. :lol:

Probelm? What problem? :)

By the way...your stuff will be there Monday. I dropped the CF card and even though it still worked fine I didn't dare send it to you...so I bought you a brandy new 1 gig Extreme III and sent the package out via Priority Mail. (Filter is in there also...I didn't drop that!)

Jim,

You didn't have to do that!! We could have just cancelled that part of the deal. Wow!!

Alas...the Hubble is doomed to extinction and won't be for sale. I hear that they are not going to repair it and they're going to let it die and burn up :(

I could have used that sucker!

I can't believe it but I'm feeling the need for a 800 or a sigma 800 or something!
