In theory, holding a digital camera in your hand and placing it in front of the lens of your spotting scope and taking a picture can be classed as digiscoping, in fact on the internet you can find images taken in this manner and the results are surprisingly good.

To get the best out of the digiscoping 'method' and to produce sharp images, certain equipment is required. It doesn't need to cost the earth to achieve good telephoto images of wildlife. Opposite is a list of equipment and useful accessories that I use to take my pictures.
