    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
