Bushnell Universal Digiscoping Adapter

You Pay: $39.99
Product Highlights
  • Attaches to Bodies or Eyepieces

The Bushnell Universal Digiscoping Adapter places your various point-&-shoot digital cameras close to the eyepiece of your spotting scope so that you can capture high resolution images, free from vignetting, directly through your scope.  It has a clamping ring with 3 tension screws for affixing to either the eyepiece or the scope body itself, which can be beneficial for scopes with somewhat delicate eyepiece assemblies.  Unlike most of these devices, the Bushnell Digiscoping Adapter quickly allows the camera to swing away for observation purposes, then returns right to the ideal point for imaging as soon as you need it.

Aligning camera and eyepiece is easier when the eyepiece has a broad, flat rear element that presents a wide target for the camera's vision to fit within.  And longer eye relief upon the eyepiece facilitates placing the digital camera further behind it so that you can use more of the camera's zoom function to magnify portions of the scope's view.

Nearly any digital point and shoot camera will work with the bracket.

As with all ventures in the world of digiscoping, you'll need to employ good technique and good equipment to get good pictures-which means a sturdy tripod, a sensibly-high shutter speed, and as much care as is possible to prohibit camera movements.  This should always include the use of the camera's electronic shutter release cable or remote control if the camera has such capacity.  When using cameras without remote release or remote control, Vixen's #39191 cable release bracket is available optionally to allow firing the camera without actually touching it.

Can attach to spotting scope's housing (instead of on the more fragile eyepiece)
3 Tension screws affix adapter to scope
Adjusts to ideally place any digital point & shoot camera behind the eyepiece
Quickly swings away to exchange between observing and imaging

        Comments about Bushnell Universal Digiscoping Adapter:

        I got these for my employees who monitor raptors nesting on communications towers. Previously we've been holding our cameras up to the scopes but this makes it much easier. When we first started using the adapters our photos came out poor quality - it does take some getting used to and there's more setup time at the beginning of the day to line up the camera correctly. If you can get it just right, though, it makes digiscoping easy and even a little more fun. It can be tough to use the scope normally with these, however, since the eye piece always rotates when the camera is flipped off to the side.

          Bought this to go along with my Bushnell Elite 20-60x80.Setup was easy. My camera fit nicely into the eyepiece with just a few adjustments.
          Probably the hardest thing to do was to remove it from the blister pack.
