    Astro adaptor or manufacturer convertor

    I have a Skywatcher telescope with a Nixon adapter. I now want to use a Canon on the telescope. Do I buy an adapter for Canon for the telescope or a convertor so I can use my Nikon 2x convertor with the Canon?

    I had some fun yesterday playing with the aperture and focus of a new (to me lens). I took photos of reflections on puddles, streams and a pond and had a very, very difficult time choosing which ones to share. Both of these images are 100% water reflections that have been rotated 180 degrees to...

    Rest above, play below

    At a very up-market shopping complex (artificially so), late on a Saturday afternoon, my eye was caught by a group of workers / cleaners that sat on the upper level, juxtaposed by a bottom-level play-arcade for kids, with a very impatient woman in diagonal opposition to the tired workers above...
