What is that you used to wrap it? It looks like camo cling bandage.

I used this one:

And I really like it. Certainly MUCH cheaper alternative to the LensCoat. There are more expensive tapes, but I really don't think it's necessary to get those more expensive ones.

I think that’s exactly what’s it is.

It’ll leave residue after a while.

I strongly doubt that. Even if it does, a simple solution is to wrap with a non-adhesive sports tape first before applying the adhesive tape on top. Just a little more work but effective.

Heat/sun + time will have it leave a residue in my experience. It’s not impossible to remove.

Yes, if it does leave a residue, a simple application of WD 40 or an alcohol based nail polisher should do the trick. But I'd imagine you'd have to have the taped lens out in the hottest sun for a very very long time in order to come to that point. Like I said, though, if this is of any concern, a simple run of non-adhesive sports tape prior to applying the camouflage tape should erase any concerns.

Stonehenge,

Stonehenge is perhaps the world’s most famous prehistoric monument. It was built in several stages: the first monument was an early henge monument, built about 5,000 years ago, and the unique stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period about 2500 BC.
Photo taken from approx half a mile away.

Not bad for a shot take 0.5 mile away. But why is my impression that it looks smaller than it realy is?

Good to see you posting again, Mark :-)

Ha Ha it deffo ain't small buddy must be the distance and elevated viewpoint, Would have loved to get closer but the traffic was horrendous down to the site and seeing as it was just a quick stop on our way back from Longleat Safari park I pulled over on the verge and snapped this from the main road.:)
