    Hello Richard!

    Both very nice images! I love the wider field shot, it seems to give it a 3 D feel. Well done sir!

    Hi.
    That's a really good photo. I've just bought the focal reducer for the ED80 and haven't had a chance to try it out with the canon yet....Darned shoulder op.... 3 weeks before I can lift the EQ6!!
