I got the Canon ELPH110 with the tines up diascoping kit last week, took it out this morning to check it out. The adapter fits like a glove on my Zeiss. The image quality is great with that cam and the zeiss. I can't wait to get some wildlife pics and start diascoping. I would recommend this set up to anyone that is thinking about getting into diascoping.
Can't wait to see some pics, Muleys.
I have been digiscoping with a Diascope 85 and Nikon J1 lately, and have had some good results.
Here is some video:
I did, and I have been enjoying the extra Xs that the big eyepiece offers.
I used a Nikon D7000 for the first time backpacking this year. Just finished a 65 mile section of the CDT, and I will be taking it hunting with me which will also involve backpacking. It replaces a Nikon Coolpix 5700 and is so much nicer with very little weight gain. 8oz. I think. Just turning it on and the auto focus is way faster, and being able to use a UV filter eliminated that slight blue tint in photos taken at high elevation. I also carry a polarizing filter now. An adapter that attaches like a lens allows the spotting scope to be used like a lens, and with the live view zoom it makes a very nice eyepiece. It does 20min HD videos, which I don't do a lot of. This DSLR is just so much better than the point and shoot.
BB, I noticed the quality in the footage above can only be viewed in 480p, Dose your J1 have HD? If so, why couldn't I veiw in HD?
