I read an article in Outdoor Photographer (October issue, I think) about using spotting scopes for long-distance photography. As far as I know, most teleconverters magnify at 1.4-2x. Spotting scopes (I believe they are used primarily for hunting, birding and so on) have far greater magnifying power: 10, 20, 30 or more X. It looks like a pretty good idea, but the catch is that the camera has to be mounted to the scope via step rings, adaptors, etc. Have any of you had any experience with this? Could you recommend specific scopes and the adaptors, step rings, etc. that would be required to set up such a system?
