Default opticron mighty midget

Anyone tried using a MightyMidget for digiscoping?

looks like a nice small lightweight model for hiking.
Any views appreciated;

It looks interesting, but only tests would indicate whether it's truly suitable for digiscoping. Factors such as chromatic aberration will only be resolved when someone actually field tests it, but it does appear to have promise as a digiscoping tool. The fixed focal length is slightly longer than most of the larger spotting scopes such as the Swarovski, Pentax and Leica, so the "F" rating will be decreased a bit and lower power eyepieces will be required.

Thanks very much for the link and bringing it to our attention!

Best regards,

Lin
