A UPS 747 cargo freighter at DFW airport this morning...no crop (at 840mm - with 600mm and 1.4 tc)...

Nice clean shots you're taking, great depth of field too. Is that a Canon setup you're using? If so I have same lens and tc that I use for surf photography. I tried stacking the 1.4 and 2.0 together on the 600 just out of curiosity. Of course the OOF was nasty along with the induced heat wave distortion, but was fairly impressed as far as the reach was concerned.

The Orion nebula, taken using Pixel night sights and hand holding my phone to the eyepiece on my new telescope. (The visual view is more like a gray cloud)

I have posted some pics of this beast before but she made a rare return appearance to DFW airport yesterday and the weather was perfect for her (keep in mind it was in the single digits less than 5 days ago)....

I now have three friends that have converted over from Canon to Sony mirrorless and these guys had heavily invested in Canon prior to switching over. I'm going to wait for Canon to go full on mirrorless with their top of the line models and compare with Sony before taking the same Sony route as my friends.

After viewing the results of their work with their Sony's along with yours, the temptation is compelling to pick up a Sony and join in on the fun.

I have been drooling non-stop over the new Sony A1...not sure if I can justify the price tag but that is one sweet camera...I am thinking about getting a Sony A7 RIV though for the 61MP images...much easier on the wallet and I can get a nice student discount on it...

Life is too short so go for it. Worry about the sacrifices you'd need to make to make it happen after you start enjoying the purchase. The only problem I have with acquiring new gear is the letter of justification the wifey demands that I write up and then she keeps them filed away for future prosecution. Well yeh I embellished a bit but it sure feels like that every time she sees that "I gotta have it" gleam in my eyes. lol
