First attempt at digiscoping. (2 Viewers)


I have just made my first attempt at digiscoping with a Celestron Trailseeker 80 scope and an old secondhand Nikon 1 V2 with FT1 adapter and T-ring through the Celestron 20-60x zoom eyepiece at 20x and a couple of collared doves in the garden as "victims".

Are there any tips to get better focus using liveview?

I still used the Nikon V1 and focus while looking tru the viewfiender. I found it much accurate than tru liveview

Also start by doing a distance test with your rig; take images at closest focus range, then move further out to see where the limit of your rig's sharpness factor is. You'll save a lot of guess work on why your images are soft.
