Does anyone here do digiscoping? I have a Nikon D5000 with a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR lens. There are times like this past week that I saw two different Scoters that were too far out to get a decent pic. I bought a cheap scope when I first started and have tried to rig up a digiscoping to it with my Canon SD550 P&S. No success as of yet. I have looked into buying a new scope and adapter for my D5000 which could run into some money. Would it be better to spend the money on a 300-500mm off brand lens? I was told that I am not able to use a teleconverter on my camera with my 70-300mm. If true, would it be better for me to upgrade my camera and just buy a teleconverter for my lens.
Any advise? Tks.
