Ah, yes, , where "notebook computer" ports in your hotel room are RJ-11. I wish I was kidding, but I'm at the Munich airport Novotel. 🤦‍♂️
Unfortunately none of my computer's have had an analog modem in years. I bet it works though.

Visited today. It's been far too long since my last visit. Something, something, walls.
Thanks to @hcs for reminding me of it recently.

Now träwelling with … err … České dráhy!
EC 177 Berlin-Dresden

TXL was quite busy, so no photo, but how about a train station. Berlin Hauptbahnhof, at that!

• 1 mi ≈ 1.609 km

• The ratio of consecutive Fibonacci numbers Fₙ₊₁/Fₙ tends to the golden ratio φ ≈ 1.618 as n increases

So Fₙ mi ≈ Fₙ₊₁ km

Had some time to go to the nearby to the wildlife reserve and shoot some birbs yesterday!
of mom and her young'uns - grooming, looking for food and prepping for sleep.
Surprisingly decent shots for my first proper outing with the 800 mm manual focus.

Finally have a nice setup going for the 800mm lens!
· Had to drill and fit an end-stop screw to the T2-F-mount adapter
· Got a lens-hood (105mm ⌀ !)
· Also a circular polarized filter to try out
· A lens mount for the tripod (had to file it down to accommodate the large diameter)
Now I can balance the setup in its center of gravity to reduce vibration and eliminate droop. The hood should improve quality a lot according to people.
Time for some tests and ! 😎
