    I agree with stepnhalf. Panasonic has now up-graded the FZ150 with the FZ200. This camera should be great for those low light shots with a constant 2.8 across the lens range (up to 24x).

    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:

    BB, Nice footage, Did you end up getting a Zeiss diascope 85 after all?

    I did, and I have been enjoying the extra Xs that the big eyepiece offers.

    That's great, sounds like your as happy as I am with mine. On my up coming hunts, I'll be sure to get some good pics and footage to share.

    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.

    If you want to save a little more weight without losing the functionality of your DSLR, check out the Nikon 1 series. I am very happy with the little J1. You can also use the FT-1 adapter and maintain full funtion of your existing nikkor lenses.

    the original footage is in full 1080p. The video quality in the J1 is OUTSTANDING. I rendered the clip above in 480p for uploading size reasons for youtube. The original video out of the camera was MUCH sharper.
