Maybe one day I'll fork out the cash
Bitterroot. As far as lens choice for digiscoping, I would use the smaller lens. I dot know if i made it clear. This whole thing was brought on by googling 18-55 digiscoping. Alot of people said it was a great way and produces a better photo then point and shoot but you have to manually set aperture and such. Also the leupold adapter kit comes with a 52 mm screw on adapter for that lens. I looked at the tines up product you mentioned and it would be a great product if I had a point and shoot. That is the downside. I would be all over it if I did but do not wan to buy another camera. I appreciate your advice and am seeking further guidance.
I guess my ? Is the standard gr spotter adequate for taking a decent photo? Here are my two options basically
Digiscoping with standard golden ring, with 18-55 lens.
70-300 lens with teleconverter 1.5 or 2x?
What do you think would produce a better photo?
Next time I go to town I am going to go by the photo shop and talk to them about it. I am sure they have stuff I can look at.
