New Scope and first time using Phone Skope

I got a new Scope. Its a Vortex Razor HD 27-60×85. Very nice scope and a nice upgrade from my last one… It no Swarovski, but I just couldn’t pony up the cash for a new Swarovski and I prefer new equipment.. I don’t like buying used… So I got a Phone Skope adapter so I can take photos from my scope. I am not really interested in “real” digiscoping but wanted a method to record photos of birds, especially rarities that are out of range of my Zoom camera lens… I went to stony, the weather was horrible this morning…. Rain, wind, cold, fog… So I took some quick shots just to see how the adapter worked…

I am under the roof of the structure at Eastwood beach trying to stay dry... I aimed my scope at the red no swimming sign in the photo down on the beach...

I set my scope at minimum distance of 27x power and used the Iphone 7 zoom to blow up the image on my phone that is attached to the scope with the phone skope adaptor.

I look forward to trying this with birds… too cold today…
