Nice!

There's something really "odd," about taking macro shots with a telescope, although I do it myself, and do it often.

With me it's sort of catch as catch can. Out on the beach, I'm not about to change "lenses." (What would I do with the scope?). But happy as I am with the results, I do prefer my Sigma 180mm Macro lens.

Yeah, though a way out with the fieldscope, the use of the macro 180mm or 200mm seems to provide more convenience and fun. Such use of the fieldscope happens in the field only when I am waiting for the appearance of birds.

#1 is just superb. Naturally not as detailed as dedicated macro lenses but then to capture shots like these you don't have to crawl along on your belly to within inches and hope you don't frighten them away !
