Lieca APO 77 Swarovski ATS 80 HD Zeiss 85 TFL Kowa scopes + AR42T SLR adapter

Leica D-Lux 4 Camera & Digiscoping Adapter fitted to a Leica APO Televid 65
Just a quick 5 minutes in the local park produced these images.

DIGISCOPING COMPARISONS

Apart from reducing to a size suitable for the web, these images have not been altered in any way! The pictures were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 885. With each eyepiece, the camera lens was first set to its widest zoom then to the maximum telephoto. The camera autofocus was disabled and the focus set to infinity, images were focused with the scope.
High quality prints of these images can be seen in the shop.
