You gotta have a good sight with mirror lens and with that focal size to focus
well... Or else the image wont look good on full size crop. Smile
Also shutter speed must be quite high if handheld.

I used tripod and shutter speed of 1/800s
Sunny day's it's possible to handheld photos quite easily but if it's not so bright
gotta use 1600 ISO to reach shutter speeds to get sharp images.
I would say... Sunny day handheld otherwise mono or tripod.. Smile Or not so good images at least with full size crops.

I think had quite good focus in this image Smile
