The TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATX/STX Spotting Scopes from Swarovski is a proprietary adapter used to connect a DSLR or mirrorless camera body to the viewing module of ATX/STX 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.

            Comments about Swarovski TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATX/STX Spotting Scopes:

            Perfectly aligns the camera body with the scopes eyepiece.
            With some understanding of ISO and shutter speed, it takes fantastic images.
            Attaches and detaches lightning fast.
            Is a camera lens that takes pictures when not attached to the scope.
            This tool will change the future of digiscoping.
            This lens has no focus feature. You use the spotting scope to focus, it takes some practice to get super sharp images.

                Comments about Swarovski TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter for ATX/STX Spotting Scopes:

                Both of the camera adapters for the ATX come with a replacement eyepiece ring that snugs down a supplied collar. If one collar is installed, either adapter can be used.

                The big end of the TLS adapter fits over the collar and is locked in place with a thumbscrew.

                Images taken through the adapter are excellent. The downside is that the adapter/scope combination has an effective f stop that is relatively high, perhaps around f11. Thus, there are choices to be made on ISO, shutter speed, and lighting. The camera and TLS adapter add weight that unbalances the setup.

                My Canon 60D does not provide focus indications with higher f stop lenses, so focusing is manual by eyesight. A remote camera release improves results.

                That being said, the adapter works very well, and is easy to install/remove.

                The TLS adapter is not supplied with any kind of case.
