Very nice John. Did I understand that you shot these with a 600mm + 1.4 TC?

John,

Please don't post any more shots with this combo. I'm in enough trouble with my wife as it is.... :lol:

What tripod / head set-up do you use with this monster? These are very sharp. Did you use MLU?

LOL, Frank. I didn't get this monster till after my wife passed away. No one to justify it to except myself (and I have no self-control). I usually use a heavy Bogen tripod (#3233) with a full Wimberley head with this set-up, although I have used a Sidekick a couple of times.

And I'll have to plead ignorance on the MLU question. I'm not sure what that stands for.

Hi John.

Thats a beautiful shot. That rig lets you get right in there. By the way MLU in Frank's post stands for mirror lock up.

Sorry John. Dennis is correct. Mirror lock-up. Just wondered how you got such a sharp shot at that focal length (840mm).

Thanks,
