BORG Fork Mount and 36ED

I wanted to test how a portable mount works with BORG fork mount – 3101  3101’s slow motion controls are really convenient for centering the target.

As usual, Mr.Borg took new optics to Nara for several field test. These are all taken with 36ED with 1.1x flattener(prototype) and NEX5N. What a crisp sharpness and vivid color!
