Default Mourning Dove

I found a mourning dove nesting in my neighbor's tree. Shot with a CP-5000, Televue 85 scope, William Optics DCL-28 eyepiece, and a Televue 2.5X Powermate.

Nice work. Sometimes digiscoping shots can look a little soft, but you don't have that problem ! Could I ask what post processing you did on the image ?

Regards,
Graham.

Very sharp image! Congratulations!

By the way Panotaker, do you have a nice zoom range with your CP 5000 and your telelens without vignetting? Could you tell me more?

I own a CP 5000 and I'm looking to buy a telescope...

Thanks!

Hey Ralph,

Oustanding photo - if the danged OOF branch wasn't in the way it would have been "perfect."

Best regards,

Lin

Thanks everyone. I didn't do much processing. Most of the work was done by the scope. I mainly just unsharp masked in Photoshop and adjusted the colors a little. I also ran it through Neat Image. With the 5000 I get a little bit of zoom, but I don't really notice how much because I always have it zoomed out all the way when I take the scope pictures. If I want it closer or farther away, I just put on a different eyepiece or add a barlow or focal reducer.
