Australia K&M Opening

K&M Adventures is heading to Australia, 14-20 August, 2016 and we have an opening. We’re heading to a once in a lifetime location for critter photography, O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. I first went there after seeing Sir David Attenborough’s special on the Satin Bowerbird. The nest he filmed at was still being used years later and I was able to shoot there for a couple of days. I came back from our time there with photos of an additional 50 species of really cool bird species hard to find elsewhere. It’s really an amazing place! Of course, the trail boardwalk that goes through the TOP of the forest canopy, the bar in the TOP of a tree and the friendliness of the birds don’t hurt the attraction either. We’re looking at the first week of August, 2016 for this adventure. The price should come in around $5400 which covers your lodging at O’Reilly’s, breakfast and dinner, transportation to and from the airport to the lodge, guides and instruction (they gave...

You have to now depress the two button on the left and right side at the same time to unscrew the eyepiece. Its truly locked into place and isn’t accidentally coming off. In fact, I’ve had a few folks write in and have personally experienced how difficult it can be to get the eyepiece unscrewed even when you depress the two buttons. Found a real simple solution that I mentioned in my last Podcast. Depressing the two button also permits the DK-27 to completely slide off the D5. With it off, place it in the sun for a couple of minutes and is quickly unscrews. As one who earned sore finger tips trying to unscrew an eyepiece, this simple cure might just save you some...
