Has anyone else had a close look at the spotting scopes in the Birds
Australia Bird Shop catalogue?

The two Kowa scopes mounted on the Manfrotto tripods have been fitted
sideways (parallel to the altitude axis), and the Leica scope appears
to have been fitted to the Berlebach (wooden) tripod without a tripod
head at all!  Things could be worse - some would-be astronomers have
returned "faulty" Newtonian telescopes having set them up as in the
catalogue - upside down.

                          I came, I saw, I ticked.
