Digiscoping

Recommended Posts

Skull Guy    89

We just got a Vortex Viper HD 20-60x80 Angled Spotting Scope and would like to do some digiscoping with it. I have done a little research, and wonder if anyone uses the phone adapters? The item I am look at is here: https://www.phoneskope.com/store/add_to_cart

What other options are there? We also have a Canon rebel XTI DSLR, but there dont seem to be many adapters that big

Pretty sure that Vortex makes (or made?) its own adapter for the Viper that can be used with DSLRs.  I got one for my Razor, but really haven't used it much.  There is probably a learning curve and I should experiment more, but often the images don't seem all that much better than using my 400 mm lens and cropping. 

I will also digiscope with my phone, without an adapter.  If I extend the eye relief it often results in a stable platform to rest the phone at an appropriate distance to take photos.
