Never heard of it until tonight.

Digiscoping is combining your camera and a telescope to shoot wildlife - mostly birds, from what I can see.

    Good news for Nikon owners who own Nikon digital cameras and Fieldscopes.
    Nikon introduces the Digiscoping System - Fieldscope Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L1, Fieldscope Digital Camera Bracket FSB-1, and Wide DS Fieldscope Eyepieces

    More info here.

    Sounds cool - Birders have been digiscoping with P&S cameras - frequently CoolPixes, and spotting scopes for several years. Try googling digiscope and you will find lots and lots of links.

    I'll have to buy an FSA-3 for my CoolPix and give it a try now 1drink.gif

    ScopeTronix also sells adapters for telescopes.

    I have a T-ring mount and an eyepiece thread on.

    Can't say I've ever used the scope as a lens for anything other than the moon
    or stars though.
