This is unreal. You make it look easy but the thought of tracking something that fast looking into a 500mm and everything is perfect on all the pictures is amazing.

Incredible set .... has just convinced me that I should rather leave my lense cap ON when shooting (the only way to stop embarassing myself  :o)

Well done, Mike, I love #6 and #7 too. Believe me, I know how long one has to wait to catch a sequence like this ;)
