Default More dirt cheap digiscoping

This fire hydrant is 50 to 60 yards away from my tripod mounted camera, photographed with and without my 1000mm reflex lens. I tried to match the crops and focal lengths. The camera was my trusty Sony H70. The scope/eyepiece combo yielded 42X. Taken from my garage.

Phil, me old friend, we Texans have an old saying: "It ain't braggin if you can do it". My intent of this thread was to illustrate the amazing range of magnification that can be achieved with relatively inexpensive optics. I might be considered a braggart if I were to expound on the fact that I was involved in the first unmanned Moon landing as well as the first manned Moon landing, but I won't do that.
