Digiscoping photography, also called spotting scope photography, is simply the act or process of taking pictures with your digital camera, through the lens of an optic telescope.
Can you remember the last time you were out hiking and tried pointing out something in the distance to your friends? You have them stand next to or behind you to try and line up their line of sight with yours. We’ve all been there and it’s terribly frustrating when people can’t see what you see! Or maybe you’ve seen deer or elk off in the distance, but your camera, especially your smart phone camera, just can’t quite capture the wildlife at that length. This is what digiscoping is for!
Phone Skope makes it easy to digiscope with your smartphone. First, place your phone into the Phone Skope phone case. Next, fix optic adapter to the Phone Skope phone case. Now you can attach the Phone Skope adapter to your spotting scope. Start digiscoping, it’s that easy!
Some hunters choose to stalk or cover large distances in hopes of cutting off animals ahead of them, while others choose to find a high spot and glass. Hunters that glass from high points usually do so with a spotting scope or binoculars. In this situation, a Phone Skope is the perfect tool to catalog the animals being observed. Whether you’re a rifle, black powder, or archery hunter, match up your binoculars or spotting scope with a Phone Skope and your smartphone and start capturing the memories today!
Astronomy has benefited by digiscoping.
Where stargazers used to need special, expensive attachments and lenses to attach to their cameras – you can now simply attach the smartphone in your pocket to your telescope.
“Sometimes you get a new piece of equipment that you can’t live without! Being able to quickly take video and photos using the Phone Skope is critical to my career in the hunting industry.”
