Rick,

One of my local birding buds uses the ED 50 (I think with the zoom though) to phonescope regularly. He uses the Phone Skope adapter/case for his setup...along with their bluetooth shutter release. They have all of the adapters/cases pre-made for existing spotting scope eyepieces.

Do you mean the Kowa Smartphone adapter? If yes, you would need to buy one of the additional rings to fit your DS eyepiece. This pdf lists one of the rings being compatible with DS eypieces (the bottom one): http://www.kowaproducts.com/kowa-iph...-april2016.pdf

I use the Kowa adapter on my Swaro scope. Works great.

does anyone know where to get the adaptor ring? I can see the case on Amazon (expensive isnt it?)

Anyone got any pics with this combo?
