Shot at 600mm and flying fast, these “Vandy 1” L-39 Albatross airplanes would have been a tough shot to get without the Tracker! The optical site allowed me to easily follow them with both eyes open to get this image! ISO 450, 1/1250 sec, f10, on a Nikon D7200, Tamron G2 150-600mm @600mm.

Also shot at 600mm and flying straight up, this North American T-6 Harvard Mk 4 “J’s Bird” gave a great view of the belly of the aircraft with impressive contrails! I was surprised how easy it was to sight in this moving target with the PGD Tracker and happy to capture some great air show shots! ISO 280, 1/1250 sec, f8, on a Nikon D7200, Tamron G2 150-600mm @600mm.

This was the most impressive use of the Tracker. The parachute jumpers were tiny specks in the sky and I couldn’t find them looking through the viewfinder on my camera using my long lens. But using the Tracker they were easy to spot and I was happy I didn’t miss the shot! ISO 400, 1/1250 sec, f8, on a Nikon D7200, Tamron G2 150-600mm @600mm.

One of many shots of a local osprey I took this past spring while field testing the #esm_1 mount and #PGD_Tracker. 1/2000, f6.3, ISO 2500 at an effective FL of about 780mm. Canon 7Dmk2.

Joel sent us this great shot of an Osprey taken on his very first day using the PGD Tracker. He was practicing by shooting sea gulls when this osprey with a fish winged by. According to Joel, "I would never have gotten the shot looking through the viewfinder. I only had a few seconds to raise my camera, locate him with my Tracker, and press the shutter". Well done, Joel!
