After viewing some other posts I decided to try stacking my 6t and TCON-14B to see if there were any advantages. I found there was some advantage in that it allowed me to take the shots from a greater distance. The increase in distance is not huge but for skittish subjects every little bit helps. I stacked the TCON-14B on the 6t. I don't yet know if the reverse would make any difference. I was hand holding the camera.

Fabulous photos. Very sharp and beautifully saturated. A resounding success:!:

The Nikon 6T + TCON 14B doubles your focal length from 12" to 24" allowing you a better chance of capturing those illusive little creatures. I did and posted the same experiment some time back using one of my watches and was very surprised at the sharpness.

They're terrific, beyond totally cool and amazing results.
CONGRADULATIONS. excellent results from the two lens combo.

Could you explain a bit what they are allowing you to do in terms of zoom range, distances close and far... what kind of range you have?

Thanks for the comments. Hiroshi, I must have missed your earlier post. You are right the combination still produces very sharp pictures.
Glad you liked them pappy thanks.
Tazzie, as Hiroshi stated above, the combination provides a little more flexibility by allowing greater distance between the camera and subject. One foot does not seem like much but for skittish little critters it can be very important

tcook,
those are quite *superb* butterfly images. It is the "painted lady".
Care to share the "in-camera" settings and the pp workflow???

Thanks for the comments. Here is the information on the picture.
The only PP for these pictures was cropping, re-sizing and sharpening. It was a bright sunny day so all the colors were good with no PP required.
Exposure/auto 1/500 F/5.2 ISO 64 Auto focus/spot Metering/spot Focal length/162mm Contrast/normal Saturation/normal Sharpness/high

I had not stumbled on these before: great quality, seems like high end dSLR shots. One of the best butterfly series I have ever seen from a FZ camera
