I think I may be expecting too much from my equipment. I have just entered the world of digiscoping and am wondering what the maximum distance is for capturing clear photos of birds.

Using a Canon Digital Rebel 300D on a Denali 60mm scope (using the adapter and t-ring which connect nicely) on a tripod -how far away can a bird be, say a duck for instance,where I can get a clear picture?

Alot of my digiscoping pictures are too dark and grainy to do anything with; I can lighten up some closer picturesusing Photoshop Elements that came with the camera, but most distance shots seem to turn out terrible. These dark/grainy pictures seem to be with birds that are 500' - 1000' away in daylight. I usually have the ISO set @ 400 and the WB set on either sunny or cloudy - matching the daylight.

Am I asking too much from my basic entry level equipment?
