Hi Ric
Still no white stuff around??
Looks like the new stick is a keeper?
must admit to being very jealous wherby you can just walk out the door and belt a few rounds off?
Cheers

Hey Ric,
How did you take those pic's? They are amazingly clear.
Also, how did you post them? I have a digital camera and would like to put a few pics on here!
Thanks.

I use the ImageEvent site on the net.. $25 a year for them to host and I have had NO problems ever... takes a bit of reading to get the posting thing down but once you understand it no sweat....

I just put my digital camer up to the scope and got a good site picture focused and shot.. worked pretty well huh....

;-)

Ric--im guessing your camers was set on macro mode?

I had to set it on macro (since you are actually focusing on the imag projected 3" behind the scope)

got some nice thru shot from my 50x, and a 45x swaro spotter at williamsport--will try to remember to put them up here or SH.

cheers,
JB
