This is very impressive, and I don't mean the magnification - I mean the "clairity" of the image. Magnification is something I assume - But P&S cameras usually lack the fine detail that you are...

The point of my post was to present an alternative, and cheaper method for digiscoping then mine. A Swarovski now runs close to 3K, and its competitiors are about the same. Rather then settling for a...

Well, he has a "limited budget."

A good long lens costs more than a 'Scope, and even the usual spotting scopes cost a bundle.

Still, Meade and Celestron do make cheap, mirror scopes with...

If your buget is limited, you would be best off buying one of those mirror scopes made by Meade or Celestron. They are more delicate than spotting scopes, but have better optics than all but the best...

Street defines "digiscoping" as hooking a telescope up to a digicam which has a lens. Digiscoping therefore consists ONLY of using such a digicam with a scope.

Doing what I do; i.e. substituting a...

The Nex is an interchangable lens camera. If the Nikon has a camera adapter, then you could buy that, something called a T-mount, of which one end screws into the camera adapter, and the other end,...

The Canon may or may not be a good camera for digiscoping. I have no idea - But NO P&S is as good as an SLR. The T-adapter for an SLR turns your 'scope into a lens. The attachment is direct to the...

A shame you didn't buy a Scope with a camera adapter. When used and connected, it works in the same manner as a normal manual lens.

As it is you're doing fine. I would recomend keeping it at the...
