which telescope did you use?

You deserve a medal for your design of the pano bracket. I have been taking a few panos just using the landscape position on my tripod with some semblance of success. But your bracket looks like the ideal for my Nikon Coolpix 8800 and the soon to be received Nikon D40x. I can't wait to get it made and try it. I have so much subject matter up here on Lake Superior.

Ralph, I am very impressed with all of your Austin Motorcycle Club photographs, It would appear that you enjoy photographing Motorcycles & Bikers as much as I do. I only wish I could travel all over the world photographing Motorcycles events, Well, maybe someday. I would like to invite your club to view some photographs I took at the 2004 Golden Alpen Motorcycle Rally in Ruidoso New Mexico. I hope you Like them. David Moreno
P.S. If you like the photographs, Please vote for Them so others may enjoy. Thanks.

Ralph,great pics.I got here looking up Granger lake and it gave me your pic at the lake.

I agree with all the positive feedback. Certainly a wonderful site. Will any of your lense combinations work with the 5700? I am a new 5700 owner and am investigating what lenses may be needed for various work.

I just purchased the Kenko 6X converter and find it very useful. It comes with an adapter threaded for the coolpix cameras at 28mm. The lens itself is a 16mm. I was able to take some very nice shots with it on the camera. I am still considering the Crystalvue as I believe it is a 32mm. Still working on where to post them, but if you or someone else wants examples of this lens, just e mail me.

I believe you mentioned on the Yahoo-Nikon5000 group that you have the the Crystalvuew Sharpshooter 8x32 lense. Have you had a chance to take some test shots and compare them against your Kenko? I would be very interested in seeing some comparisons and hearing your about your first hand impressions about what you like/don't like. I've been thinking about getting a long telephoto for my CP5000 and am debating the merits between the Kenko, Crystalvue, and EagleEye monoculars. Its always helpful to rely on the opinions of actual product owners/users.

Hi Ralph,

May I know where I can buy kenko 8X32 ?
Which is the adaptor ring required to connect to CPK 5000 ?
Mark Lederer 07-Apr-2002 22:08

I have seen your pictures. Can I ask how well does the CrystalVue work on a CP 5000 WITHOUT an add-on lens like he Olumpus B300.

Hi. I'm a member of yahoo groups ETXAstro also. I used your photo's as a general guide and set up the same system, which ended up being much cheaper for me as well. Question though, on the Autostar 497, did you set it up telling it that it was an ETX 90 or did you have it set as a DS model? Using this system you're not restricted to any stop settings so I was just curious. I put mine on ETX 90 and to view west it naturally makes a long swing out of it because it thinks it has stops. Also, I think I read a post where you switched back to the ETX90EC base. Was there any particular reason? This setup seems to work really well for me.
