Ok, I'm setting up chairs so we can just watch Jay and Glenn roll their work by...... I'd be dangerously close to taking up golf, if it wasn't like watching paint dry!

Under the heading of "holy Kenyon Batman!" I just landed in the pitch dark and this was taken two minutes before I touched down. The brightness in the western sky is an illusion. D800/iso1600/1/30 sec. Kenyon 4x4.............

This is one of those times when I can pick at a shot for grain, etc, but must remind myself it was most likely unobtainable a week ago...............

At 1/30th, the runway number are tack sharp, unreal. I can hardly wait to try some air to air tricks with this rig!

The other thing a tool like this allows one to do, is amortize the cost of it in one evening............

I seem to have neglected to post a few more shots from our "Yak Attack" a couple of weeks ago. A mixture of Yak-52s and Nanchangs:

Yowzer Jim! Those are some pretty impressive results you got from that equipment! Holy Kenyon is right!

I'm not rolling anything. I'm just running like crazy to stay out of Glenn's way!

Nice stuff Jim. However, being from Detroit, when I see the word Gyro, I think Beef and Lamb on flat bread with yogurt! OPAH!

I hear that they are doing free sensor cleaning at HQ this week, which includes lunch at I'n'O............ For anyone with the initials GW, from Austin.................

All kidding aside, Ya gotta clean those sensors or you'll spend the rest of your life cloning crud. I hate it. The X and the D800, mostly the X get trashed very quickly.

Thanks Rich and Jay. It's so nice to have something you spend a bunch of money on end up being more than you had hoped for. Far too often the scenario is reversed. There's one winging it's way to a very talented MA2A'er as we speak. I can't wait to see the grin, as if his stuff isn't stellar enough as it is.

Oh, and just for grins I looked at every frame from tonight's flight. The results are in, 487 frames, three weren't sharp. I'm debating whether to send it back................. I wanted to shoot a video so badly, but that's not what I was there for and the light was changing rapidly as I orbited. Given how everything felt, it would have been velvety. Another day.

Do you find yourself using that filter a lot Jay? Can see lots of opportunities when shooting during the middle of the day for sure.
Do you notice any IQ loss?

Not great quality, a 7D with 70-200 + Kenko 2.0x TC isn't that great to be honest (not to mention I struggle with slow ss shots). An Army Air Coprs Lynx doing it's thing
