Actually all of targets which can be seen from southern hemisphere are quite fresh to me since I’m still the northern  man.  So very nice to see. Thank you, David.
BTW, I noticed he looks using 0.85x reducer – probably 7885 originally designed for Mini Borg series, with 71FL. I thought 7885 didn’t work with 71FL. But from his result, it looks having good optical compatibility. So if it doesn’t have to cover full frame sensors, 71FL + 7885 looks one of other options too.

  1. I sure hope the 7885 works with the 71FL since that’s what I was sold last NEAF 🙂 You even posted one of my images on this blog back in May. Granted that was before the the .7 reducer was available and I do shoot with an APS DSLR (the 50D).
