Interesting that you mention you use a Pentax scope. I just bought a PF80-ED-A thanks to Ricohí s Black Friday sale here in the US. Saved well over $300 since the 8-24mm zoom eyepiece was included. I need to track down the K mount adapter for digiscoping. Ricoh mentions it (PF-CA35) but canít find it on their website.
The PF-CA35 is a rare beast without a very strong reputation. It's a teleconverter, in effect. I haven't seen one advertised for sale in years.

You can get good results with stepping rings and a pancake lens attached directly to the eyepiece. Keep the power low and trust the high ISO performance of your sensor.

You will also need to support the camera as stepping rings are a weak link. I have this: Long-Zoom Lens Support Holder + Camera Quick Release Plate for Tripod Mount Ring | eBay

Looks more like he is baked out of his gourd and is about to ask me to pass the chips and dip.

Thanks for the info. Ricohís claim of a 1000mm tele now makes sense. I found the items referenced on eBay, but as a total digiscoping novice, I canít picture what your rig looks like & how it all fits together. A photo or two of your setup next time you use it would be most appreciated.

A few pictures of a female Black Redstart at Clevedon pier here in the UK. Taken with my K3iii/FA*600mm F4 ED[IF]/Gitzo 5532LS.

Wow, that is a superb father-child portrait. You should print it out and gift it to them!

Thanks. Sometimes you can be lucky and have both looking, usually it is just the inquisitive youngster while the adult makes out it isn't looking but is through eye slits :-)

Hopefully they will stick around for a while yet, and give me a chance to get both adults and the youngster together for the family portrait.

Cheers,
Terry
