  • Compatible with ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM

The TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM Spotting Scopes from Swarovski is a proprietary adapter used to connect a DSLR or mirrorless camera body to the viewing module of ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM series spotting scopes. A T2 camera adapter is also required to complete the Swarovski digiscoping system. When the TLS APO, T2 adapter, and camera body are mounted to the spotting scope eyepiece, users are treated to a truly stunning digiscoping experience. The TLS APO has a 30mm apochromatic pancake lens that perfectly aligns the camera sensor with the focal plane of the transmitted image. Regardless of the camera used, you will capture contrast-rich and sharp video and still images using the premium optics of your Swarovski spotting scope.

Note! T2 adapter and camera (not included) required for digiscoping.

Compatibility
ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM spotting scopes
Optical Performance
The apochromatic optics ensure that image quality from your scope will not be degraded by the TLS APO adapter. Capture the same stunning images with your digital camera that you see through the eyepiece.
Functionality
The choice for professionals and advanced amateurs in any imaging field, the TLS APO digiscoping adapter is a quick and convenient way to use your world-class Swarovski optics to capture stunning still images and video. Switching between the spotting scope's modular eyepiece and a camera rig is easy due to the slide-down mount system on the adapter sleeve.

          Comments about Swarovski TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM Spotting Scopes:

          I have tried several different methods of digiscoping and have at least two other adapters for camera to scope. Using this adapter with my ATM 80 Swarovski scope has made it incredibly simple to get clear, sharp images through the scope. The device is simple to set up and very easy to use. Focusing is through the scope, and the design of this adapter allows very simple zooming. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it to other Swarovski scope users.

          Could be sharper on STM 80 HD

                Comments about Swarovski TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATS/STS HD, ATM/STM Spotting Scopes:

                I bought this here in Canada from a local store, as B+H doesn't ship Swarovski items to Canada anymore. I installed the adapter on my Swarovski STM 80HD (the predecessor of the current Swarovwki STS 80HD) with the 25-50x Swarovski ocular. As usual, I have a bunch of test targets, which I like to shoot first. The most revealing one is a rooftop airvent about 50 m away from my house. It has a grid inside, to prevent birds entering into the air system of the house.

                What I like about the TLS APO adapter is the ease of use. The rubber eye ring of the ocular can stay on all the time, therefore it is quick to change between observation and photography.

                What I don't like is that the TLS APO could definitely be sharper. When shooting the test target with a Sony NEX-5R, Novoflex adapter and TLS APO, the target is noticably less sharp than when shooting with the same camera, the Sony NEX 35 mm f/1.8 lens at f/4.0 and the Swarovski DCA adapter.

                So, for a quick shot of what was in the field, this adapter is fine, but for serious digiscoping, unfortunately, it is not my first choice.

                I connected the TLS APO to my canon T3i and to my Swarovski AT/80 HD scope. Great quality pictures from the product. very durable. Gave it 4 stars instead of five because I am having issues with vignetting, dont know if it is because of my older eyepiece on the scope or not. I will do more experementing with it but overall an excellent, high quality product from swarovski
