Very nice!
I agree with Jim. What a difference a couple of months makes. It's interesting to compare the before and after images.

Keep up the great work.

 
scope vs lens
Thank you both! I believe the old ones were single images taken (point-n-shoot at max zoom - 42mm) through the eyepieces of my stereoscope (10x + 1x objective), while the latest ones are montages using all-camera lens (point-n-shoot zoomed to max tele (42mm)+ 2x teleconverter + reversed 50mm f1.4). I have no idea why the newer ones are so much better than the scope, which is a sub $1k scope but still not that bad. Objects in the scope certainly look better to my eyes than they apparently do to my camera.

Nice work, Tim!
I'm still putting off an upgrade to get some other elements of my Ecuador plan nailed down. It'll be great to finally do it though.
