This bracket's primary intent was to facilitate placing a non-SLR digital camera near the eyepiece of a spotting scope, allowing you to record the images without having anything screwed into the digital camera's filter rings.

However, it is also possible to attach your Zeiss Diascope, as well as most other spotting scopes, to SLR cameras, digital point & shoot cameras or video cameras without the need to use a camera-specific attachment ring. This method provides better rigidity than any of the camera or scope-specific adapters, and rigidity of the unit in ultratelephoto photography is always a battle, but you'll need to have the recording device as close to the scope's eyepiece as possible to minimize the chance of vignetting. Additionally, if you're using this with an SLR camera, you'll need a true 1:1 macro lens which can focus upon the image being projected by the eyepiece.

All ventures in the world of digiscoping require the use of a sturdy tripod, first and foremost.  Logical choices for a tripod/head combination are indicated here as accessories, with an ascending order in price & support.  You must take great care to keep vibrations during exposure to an absolute minimum.  Employing a cable release, electronic release or remote control for tripping the shutter is absolutely necessary.
