Been awhile and lots has changed

I think my last blog on this issue was a year and half ago...wow, time flies. Since that time I have experimented with digiscoping and learned how to take fairly good images using a scope plus camera.

My Zenfolio page has a link dedicated to Digiscoping only.

Sadly...in this past year I sold my Swaro 80HD....I wanted and needed to finance some other aspects of my overall birding.... and it was a sound investment.

Now...I am back to getting into digiscoping...

Digiscoping Day 3

Posted Friday 12th March 2010 at 14:53 by lmans66

This time I was prepared as I set the camera up just right ahead of time and took the alum wrench with me just in case I needed to adjust something.

I felt good about the process now of setting up the scope, focusing in on the bird, swinging the adapter/camera down and taking the picture. I...

Digiscoping

Posted Tuesday 9th March 2010 at 01:33 by lmans66
I began digiscoping as an alternative to my camera for birding. I seem to fit better with the concept of digiscoping and now I have to work with it to hone my skills. I have excellent equipment with my swaro 80mm HD and adaptor. I went out today for the first time with the adapter and of course it was cold, somewhat rainy. Why is it that everytime I begin something it is in rotten weather?

Anyhow, I had my camera all set up with my adapter on the scope and ready to go. I needed to...
