Through the looking glass

My first exam is tomorrow, that's why I was out practicing digiscoping again today!

And what better bird to practice with other than the Dipper! Today I sat around patiently waiting for it to preen/stretch its wing out. Unfortunately I caught the wrong side of the bird, but it'll do:

And here's a video of the same bird showing how easy it is to place the camera over the eye-piece and then zooming in on the bird:

Not a bad result considering that that camera was hand-held!

If you haven't seen/heard the Bird Song Quiz you should give it a try (scroll down to find it)! Thanks to David and Josh for giving very thorough answers. You guys are way better than I am!
