I’ve had my scope for a few weeks now and I’m really loving it. So far the most action it’s seen was last weekend on the Looney Trip. I’ve brought it out a few other times but mostly I use it every day to check out the birds hanging out in our back yard.
Now that I’m getting the hang of it, I want to try digiscoping. We got a universal adapter and tried out our old Canon A95 on it.
I’m in the market for a new camera, though. The A95 is heavy (especially with four AA batteries) and bulky.
Meanwhile, I’ve tried digiscoping “by hand” a few times. Here’s a Dark-eyed Junco and our resident squirrel.
Side note: When we first moved in we were kind of bummed about the big warehouse behind our yard. But now that we’re peeping on the birds through binoculars and scope almost every day, we’re grateful for it. No neighbors back there thinking we’re spying on them!
