Red Dot Sight-Osprey- 1st try

First time out with my RDS I found a buzzard in a tree. This time I wanted something flying.

Hi Roger

Looks like the RDS is workign a treat with the '30 - no 2 and 3 cracking shots esp the expression on its face in no2, just the cloud distracts from the first shot.

Cheers

Thanks HarjTT. I think the RDS is going to be fun.

I concur Harjtt's comments. Very nice. Did you have Tcon on camera. What type RDS did you acquire?

Love the shots of the Osprey, I don't know of any here in my part of Louisiana.

Kwik Aim is a red dot camera sighting system consisting of a Kwik Aim mount and a Daisy red dot sight.
Here is the link to the E-Bay auction where I bought it.

That is the same one I got. Ordered it from a post that Genece did about a month ago. Just got around to trying it this morning. Got it sighted in with no trouble at all. Tried to catch a few swallows flying over the bayou, but they are so fast, I wasn't able to keep them in sight.

The only comment about the RDS, at least the one I got is that the crosshairs are not aligned properly, which is not really a problem as you are panning anyway. At least, I don't see it as a problem.

I agree with you. I didn't find the crosshairs any kind of problem.
