Digiscoped with a fieldscope, 30x-eyepiece and Nikon CP8400. Like the total flatness attained from digiscoping, which makes it possible for the background to be totally blurred out.

Simply stunning, not a lot else I can say!!!!

What is the kit you are using as this is not an area I know anything about but I really like the results.

I am using Swarovski's 80 HD ATS fieldscope to shoot. I have two eyepieces: a 30x and a 40x. The zoom range of the Nikon CP8400 is from 24 to 85mm something. If I use a 30x and I zoom the lens to 85mm, the resultant focal length will become 30 X 85mm, i.e.2550mm, one which is unprecedented in DSLR photography.
Regards,
Pete

Postscript:
In digiscopy, cameras with long zoom lenses are not suitable because the front element of these lenses will hit the eyepiece as they zoom in to the wild end. The most favourable zoom range is a 3x one that starts either at 28mm or 35mm. If the wild angle end is at 24mm, vignetting will usually occur.

Yes. It is a hangout from a reed which has become so defocused as a result of the great focal length attained from digiscoping. Pete
