Digiscoping - Using your Spotting Scope, and camera, in combination, to view or capture zoomed-in images


Topic Digiscoping

This is a work in progress, but I hope my efforts will spur interests of others in using this actually fairly simple technology.


Briefly, Digiscoping is nothing more than having a camera attached to your spotting scope, to record or view zoomed in images.

The camera can be anything from your smart phone, to a point and shoot camera, to a full blown DSLR high quality camera. There are various mounts for such applications.  Again, anything from very simple and inexpensive, to complex and costly. It all depends on  your needs and desires.
