OT - Fun with digiscoping

StormbringerStormbringer Posts: 1,399
We had a blast in Yellowstone earlier this month, taking the standard haul of pictures. However this time I played around with digiscoping, whilst SWMBO stuck to her pro Canon kit. I was pretty happy with the results, some pics and video below and a link to a blog post describing how I did it. Now looking forward to getting back to Egging.

    Awesome pics.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Thought this was going to be a post about your prostate exam.  Cool pics though.

    @TN_Egger I did too. And yet, we both clicked on it. Hmm...

    Cheers folks. @TN_Egger now you've said it, I won't be able to use the scope again without thinking about prostates. :D

    A sentiment echoed by many people in Yellowstone when they saw the kit. I should have taken some units to sell, would have made a few $$$. :D
