Welcome our new Scope


Yep thats right...Jeff and I bought a Scope....never had one of our own and thought it would be great to have one...So after much research...by Jeff,,, and hanging out at the CMBO Feather Edge Optics shop for hours on end...(Thanks to Brian for all his help and patience).....Jeff tried out all the scopes...tripods..heads... carried the scopes around on different tripods...Yikes I was getting impatient after a gazillion hours....Jeff finally decided on a nice little package that should keep us Happy Birders for many years...
We ordered a digscoping attachment so that I can take some close up bird pics and videos. I did try handheld digascoping.....holding the camera by hand up to the scope lens...very difficult...as u can see by the video below...
