Digiscoping with binoculars

I see that there are a few devices on the market for attaching an Iphone to one of the eyepieces on a binocular. Has anyone any experience in using these and whether acceptable images can be achieved.

Peter,

I have the Carson Hookupz adapter and initially tried it on a few binoculars before using it on my scopes. Inexpensive and easy to use. I don't have any pics handy but will see what I can do over the next few days.

Those are extremely good, I wonder if anything like that quality can be obtained through good quality binoculars.

Peter,

My apologies. It wasn't my intention to show my Youtube channel in reply to your post. It is actually part of my signature line that appears after every post I make.

However, to answer your question, I think you could easily achieve that quality in binoculars. The issue will be in the comparisons of magnification. Those videos are shot at 18x. Most binoculars are 7-10x so you would need to be a good deal closer to the subject in order to get that type of detail...assuming we are talking video and not still shots. The latter could easily be obtained through, depending on the resolution of your camera, by cropping and "blowing up" the image afterwards.

I've seen some good pictures from binos. One thing that helps with the aforementioned blowing up
is the extra brightness from the binoculars. If post-processing, you shrink slightly, sharpen once,
and then re-inflate.
