Some photos were taken with the aid of a Kenko 8x32 monocular and special adapter mount for Nikon Coolpix cameras. I bought the monocular and adapter from CKC Power; it appears that the Kenko monocular is no longer available, but CKC does have a similar one from CrystalVue Optics.

Some photos were taken with the aid of a Nikon spotting scope RAII (60mm objective and 15x-45x zoom lens), both with and without a special adapter mount for Nikon Coolpix cameras.  The adapter was made by my brother Fred Widmer of Penrose Glass in Waltham, MA, USA.
