Thank you Ted, and B.D. again for your criticism and suggestions.

It's funny but normally when I go to the ball park I have a 35 on the
M6 but this time I took the 50 instead because it was already mounted
on the camera.

I very much appreciate your time and suggestions which I shall
endeavor to put into practice.
