Botzie is letting me use his old 300mm Nikor lens that I was able to play with uptoon for the first time yesterday. Digital conversion math: 300mm x 1.6=480mm! While walking around in the afternoon Tuesday with the big gun I saw this huge cloud forming to the east of the Jar. Notice the roof of Charlotte's main Library at the bottom of the frame for a bit of scale perspective.
What Jeff said is perfectly correct, "This lens is going to make your camera the accessory." More data transfer from this old/new piece of glass will follow soon.
