To Kevin, forgot I had posted the screen shot of "no target found". Sorry.

I am not sure what caused the "target not found" problem. I haven't heard back from tech staff on that to this point. I did a "repair" on the software through Windows 10 and was able to use it yesterday without any problems. The software is user friendly once the user understands the process and settings for the camera being adjusted. I tested two bodies yesterday with my Canon 500mm and then the same with the 1.4X extender added. The camera bodies were the 7DmkII and the 6D. Both tests went flawlessly. I haven't yet been able to fully test the settings yet. From preliminary shots I do believe I will see an improvement. The white-winged dove I posted was shot after the calibration and at a distance greater than normal so I was surprised at the good result. I'll report back after more testing.

I heard from the tech staff and I was told to remove the blue tape. Ran the first time with blue tape and no problem. Also remove the clamps. I had done both when I ran on Tuesday so that may have well been the problem.

Glad you got a reply Bill and you've sorted out the problem. I think the software is excellent and it would be a shame if it was let down by poor technical support.

I built a new PC over the weekend and kept my LR6 and PS5 on the old standby. I am using CC on the new one and registered a new account in doing so. Will see if I like it.

On another subject, I believe the Reiken FoCal softward made a difference for me primarily at further distances. Will likely rework some settings after the first of the year.

My settings follow Marks fairly closely. I have two Cases customized for birds only & C2-C3 are registered one for BIFS etc and the other for more sedentary critters. To Mark I would add...HAng in there with those Canons! I use Canon for digitals, and Nikon for film.
