Pros: cost, weight,
Cons: fiddly,

Now this has become a very popular adapter to get a camera up to a spotting scope, and it\'s not difficult to understand why... it cost practically nothing in the world of digiscoping and photography.

Yes, there\'s quite a lot of plastic involved but it can do the job of putting most cameras up to most eyepieces. It did fall a few mm short of being able to get my Canon A95 up to my Zeiss 20-60x eyepiece but the design of the tripod screw and it\'s locking nut enables some packing to be placed under the camera to raise it enough. With smaller eyepieces (the Zeiss 20-60x is big), there should be no problems.

Given the price of this device (almost a 1/10th of what the big brackets cost), it\'s hard to be too critical. The Baader Microstage does what it is designed to, but I would still say it suits the dedicated digiscoping photographer better than the digiscoping birder.
