First try to digiscoping...

Hi friends,

I'm new to digiscoping,...and finally have tried it today.
Use currently a cheap scope (JouFou 20-60x80), with a DIY adapter,
The camera is an old Nikon 1...

The adapter has worked fine today, but i will improve it in the next week ..
Then would present it in detail ...(if someone has interest)


regards
mike

Very nicely captured.

I remember my early days at digiscoping. It was like practice makes perfect

Thanks,
Hope there are soon new "good"pictures with this setting ..
Unfortunately, currently is the weather very rainy and windy .. Maybe in some days ..
The DIY - Adpter is finished, fits very well...

I had not a great success today.. somehow could not focusing the camera perfectly...Hmm.
Yess the scope made brilliant job, only the camera was somewhat difficult to adjust..
Only two, and not so good pictures from >1000..
But maybe another day..
I'm still learning

regards
mike

I have trouble getting my iPhone SE focused sharpley through the scope. I should probably use my reading glasses.
