You have to remember Gary isn't interested in driving with it mounted. The most important is if it gets into the way of the cup holder with a glass of nice whiskey. I can see no other way he gets the stunning shots other than the calm and patience inducing effects of an amber elixir.

Thanks for your comment..


Sorry, I dont understand what to measure , You mean the height of the window opening ?
(may be a translation issue on my side)
Yes measure the height of the glass on the back edge of the door [highest part]

I think you should be OK with an Eckla mount, It seems like most new cars have smaller door windows probably due to wind tunnel testing/design

Superb shooting again Ken. How large is a Giant Nuthatch versus the Nuthatches we see in the Eastern US?

I took the F*600/4 rig up to Conowingo last week.

Got Eagles






& Herons






This one coulda been sooo good--if I'd nailed the focus (which I didn't )

Nice shots Dave - were the eagles there in good numbers or just a few locals.

Was out at a park I have never been with the Bigma. Not much going other than the mosquitoes, but did catch these two Goldfinches.

All are heavy crops at 500mm.
