 It's a double digit day!  I recently bought a lens to use for astrophotography.  I ended up purchasing an older 300mm totally manual lens.  I purchased it based on reviews that it was supposed to be incredibly sharp which is what I really needed for what I want to do with it.  I decided to take it out on a walk a couple weekends ago and captured my first American Kestrel of the winter.  I have to say, I was suitably impressed with the lens and it's sharpness.  This is cropped quite a bit as well.  This is an adult male.  I was pleased to be able to get it in a tree as well as they are usually sitting on the light poles or electrical wires.
