Here's the adapter in the 'scope, it just pushes right in until it stops, then you snug up the two setscrews to hold it in place. The camera twists onto the adapter when you want to use it.

I did take a pic of the camera on it with the wife's camera, but I was too close. Fuzzy pic. That's one of the limitations of a point and shoot. My fault.

Here's the Canon Xti on one of the tripods. I use this one for quickie type stuff because it's so easy to set up and use.

Here's a couple of hoods for light control. If you're shooting anywhere toward the sun or other bright light, the hood helps to keep stray light out and reflections off the camera.

This one is a 70-300 Canon zoom, very similar to the Sigma except it isn't macro, and the price for this one is way higher. I think they like to tell you that the Canon lenses are superior in quality...but most of us couldn't see the difference, including me.

Because the missus is having trouble walking, to say the least, I've been doing the garden watering. Took the camera down and got some pics this evening.

A couple here of one of the foxgloves which volunteered itself. Second pic caught a bee on one of the flowers.

Don't know what this one is, but it's growing in the Japanese garden.

And considering there has been no water in that garden, this ornamental grass isn't doing so bad. It's taller than I am.

Up in the top garden, the missus has a couple of nice lilies just coming out.

The missus has this lovely rose bush out by the front door to the house. One of the blooms is poking its' head between the Lexan and the handrail, and the other one is on top.

This morning I made the small gutter for the shower and put two coats of white sealer on the inside. Let that dry and stained it to match everything else.

And the last thing I did today was to fill in that unsightly gap alongside the shower.

I didn't think that the regular shingles would look that great, so I did a little shaping and put them in like so.

And yes, I finally got to test out the shower this evening...aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!

I still need to make a seat to put your foot on, add a switch to the pump and maybe make a glass door for the back.

Then clean out all the old junk wood and add some sort of tidy pathway around the side of the shower so we can go either out the front or back.

Holy $%$^ that's some nice camera equipment dude!

I'm hoping to get a Pentax digital SLR someday (a Pentax specifically because their digital cameras are compatible with old Pentax lenses, and my dad has a few nice lenses hanging around that I plan to make off with ).

That deck is seriously to die for btw - the glued up railings are exquisite.

Jules, when you buy that camera, let me know. I have a 70-300 mm 1:4-5:6 LDO macro lens and a Quantaray 2X AF teleconverter I'll give you. I have an old Pentax SLR film camera that doesn't work anymore and have no use for the lenses. There are a couple other lenses too.

Keith, your bride certainly has a green thumb. The flowers are gorgeous. It's nice that you're keeping them watered for her.

I love the shape of the shingles covering the gap. The whole shower structure looks terrific.
