Capture of me first fly in-flight with the new setup_2009. Very few insects are now avaible because the low wintertemperatur. But this capture help me to adjust the unit. The second sensor lens here is the AF60/2.8D. I've added an 6T closeup lens from Nikkor to multiply the refected ligh signal. Now i'ts works good. But the temperature now here is minus 2 degree, no more insects to see outside!

For the new setup version 2009 see:


The only difference is the sensor lens, now the AF60/2.8D to lower the weight..

To see more insects in-flight from the last year see:

  • Frans 6y

    The background is a wood barrier. In this cold weather the flies use this to warmup. Temperatuur here was about 7 degree. Capture lens is the AF105/2.8D and the sensor electronic are putted into the AF60/2.8D
