The term digiscoping is defined as the combining of spotting-scope and digital camera to take pictures. Birdwatchers formerly used telescope to watch birds in long distance such as waterbirds, waders or eagles. To take pictures of those birds, they use telephoto, which is expensive enough to be bought.
Some says that digiscoping is fairly easy to practice. Some says aren’t so. This time I have a chance to practice this method. At my office, I put a spotting scope to watch birds through the windows. There are unique birds such as Coppersmith Barbet (Megalaima haemacephala), Grey-cheed Green Pigeon (Treron griseicauda), Black-winged Starling (Sturnus melanopterus).
This is one of my pictures from first (or second) try, taken with Nikon spotting-scope and Spectra camera 2.0 digital zoom. I think digiscoping is not easy. It needs practice, a lot.
