S1) 787.5mm (1260mm): Celestron 1250mm f/10 Scope with Hirsch f/6.3 reducer/corrector (enhanced)

Taken with a Celestron C5 Telescope (White Tube, 1992-1996?) with a Hirsch f/6.3 reducer/corrector, Hirsch T-Adaptor & Vivitar T-Ring on a Canon 7d. The Celestron was mounted to a tripod, and the photo was taken at the same location as the other photos in the earlier Lens Comparison set.

This photo was enhanced- sharpening, clarity & contrast using Aviary. NO CROP!

*1260mm on a 7d (1.6x)

Lens Test conducted from Boise Depot parking area to Idaho State Capitol. The Eagle on the Capitol Building is 5’7" and 1.30 miles away.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/sawtoothphoto] that is what I thought, too. Hope to have some success with a more interesting subject soon.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/stepcasssri] thanks! I agree, wonder who lives there.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/qc52] that, and loss of contrast make actually using a long lens (scope) like this difficult.
