Very nice Leung! Do you use spot metering? That could help in the case of excessive noise if you can expose for the shadows...cheers...Don
I didn't cos spot metering is really not that suitable for digiscoping, not that it is not good but that itis difficult to discern the exact brightness of the spot to be metered in both the LCD monitor and the electronic viewfinder.Another consideration is for saving time for taking shots asquickly as possible once when the target bird is found. Have to say thatdigiscoping is not difficult if you are skilled at findyour target in the field where the angle of coverage of your fieldscope isterriably narrow.I therefore usecentre-weighedmetering in most cases andmake adjustment based on my understanding of thelight reflected from the field.

Yes, noise here is great. Take a look at the original shot for #2.

A second thought for spot metering: for night herons, spot metering is possible for they usually remain static for some time before changing posture or flying away.
