After I had saved my Grosbeak Gallery post, I remembered that I had some Rose-breasted and Evening Grosbeak images that I had digiscoped all on one day in mid-July. So I'll share them with you now.
I digiscope with an older Nikon Sky & Earth Series scope, 15-45x, 60mm objective lens. It's a smaller scope, but I like the close-focus capabilities of it. I spend most of my digiscoping time in the 15x zoom range. I dream of getting a new scope, but this one will do for at least a while longer.
I use a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 with Carl Zeiss 3x zoom lens, 10.1 megapixel, and a large touch-screen LCD. The Zeiss lens sold me on this camera, and the touch-screen LCD display is especially helpful when digiscoping.
I attach the camera to the scope with a Vortex Universal Digiscoping adaptor (small). I often just leave my camera attached to the scope. This keeps my digiscoping setup ready to go!
My tripod is an older Bogen 3001 and an old, cumbersome Manfrotto head. I'm looking to replace that head with a better tripod head for digiscoping. Any suggestions out there???
Give digiscoping a try!
