Default Travel scope

While I am still recovering and not allowed to carry much kit I dug out our old travel scope this afternoon and found it very handy.It is an Opticron MM2 with a handy zoom lens up to 39x although it is only good up to about 30x in my opinion.We have fitted it to a Culman mini tripod/shoulder pod which goes nicely on most hide shelves.This could be a useful set up in the near future when we are birding in hides.

I have taken a couple of i.d. shots through it with a basic point and shoot compact but it is not my thing really,I prefer to enjoy the work of others.
