Whether you've found my site because you are wanting to try digiscoping for the first time, or own a business that may require expert demonstrations, you are most certainly in the right place for anything digiscoping!!
My name is Danny Porter, I am 39 years old, live in Lowestoft, Suffolk and I have been digiscoping for the last 9 years. In this time I have learned how to digiscope using all types of different scope and camera adaptations.
Then came this website, and as I progressed I have been relied upon to review equipment, provide advice and demonstrate some of the best digiscoping equipment for some of the best known optic brands.
Companies such as Swarovski Optik, Nikon U.K, Carl Zeiss, Viking Optical and Opticron have all loaned me equipment to test and review.
In 2014 I visited the Swarovski Optik factory, in Absam, Tyrol,
and have been trained in the use of their equipment at their factory in Absam.
I am also present at more and more optics shows across the U.K so that I can help you with your digiscoping dreams!
The perfect digiscoping combination!!
At the time of writing this, I am still the only digiscoper to offer beginner courses, with the very best equipment supplied to learn with.
I have spent a long time learning digiscoping so now I am in a position where I can help one and all, and provide a service to one and all that can be relied upon to be as accurate as possible, and above all else, honest.
There has never been a better time to try digiscoping!
Modern cameras, adapters and scopes have meant that the equipment has finally caught up with the concept.
Digiscoping has never been easier to try and learn!!

I aim to help as many as possible with digiscoping. I do this by trying to provide the most up to date website, info, reviews and advice as well as lessons in the field.
I can offer a practical, hands on approach which actually gets you, the consumer involved in trying digiscoping for the first time.
Don't think that any enquiry is too small, I'll help you with everything from tiny stepping rings to 95mm objective lenses!
Digiscoping has finally evolved. In the beginning the cameras and adapter available were not up to speed with the concept. However, now cameras are more advanced, adapters are more advanced and the whole "Heath Robinson" style approach to digiscoping has been left behind, making digiscoping easier and less frustrating!
I didn't learn overnight, and regardless of cost of equipment the best thing you can invest is time.
Hopefully this website and my lessons will aid you in achieving some incredible photographic results for yourself one day.
Please look around the site. I always try to keep advice and equipment information up to date and relevant to equipment available to buy.
I hope there is something for everyone!!
