I went out to see if I could get anything with the 300/2.8 stacked with 1.4x and 2x extenders. Results were encouraging as I found that I could get something reasonably decent but certainly not anything that could be considered anything more(stacking extenders isn't the best way to get quality photos). However, I'm happy in that if I need the distance I will be able to get something usable. This bluejay was at the very top of a large tree inthe yard next to the one I was shooting in.The sun was only out for a short time so I had no time to do a real test.

Of course this shot required some post processing in order for it to be postable: Neat Image, selective sharpening, contrast up, etc.

And you handheld your rig for this shot, Norm? If so, at that focal length the shot is remarkable! I can see that you had to do quite a bit of post-processing (notice the haloing along the edge of the bluejay's bill), but even so the picture is pretty good given how much glass you had in the path.

Thanks for checking it out y'all. Certainly not a method that I would use to get a photo that I was going to print or publish, but good enough for records, novelty, and just plain horsing about.

Now where is that telescope...

:?Norm, that is amazingly clear for the stacked multiplyers you used. I would not have guessed they could be tht good. Well done.
