Hello Tord. Nice to communicate with you on this forum for a change.

My efforts at digiscoping were rather half-hearted. I used a Nikon ED50, with a 20x MC wide eyepiece. The camera was a Fuji F30 compact. I found that focusing was rather difficult and the whole process was somewhat cumbersome. I am much happier with my DSLR, especially as I can use it hand held and never carry a tripod (that is probably why I end up with so many blurred photos ).

'Astroscoping' sounds like a much better proposition than digiscoping and some of the results which I have seen from you and others are stunning. However, I prefer to go for a walk to look at birds and photographing them comes second. I don't wish to be hampered by large scopes and tripods. Keep up the good work, though. It is nice to see the boundaries being pushes.
