Hello folks.

I am a keen birder and photographer. However, digiscoping sparks my interest. I have a Nikon D 3100 with a 18-55mm lens and I have an RSPB AG80. I would like to know how, if possible, can I connect the two?

Hi there,

As far as I know there isn't a bespoke adapter for this scope. It was sold with a compact kit once, but not for DSLR.

In the most simple terms you could try one of THESE

You'll need to measure the diameter of your eyepiece first.

The adapter would connect to the camera without the lens on, and then the other end attaches around your scopes eyepiece.

The technique for Nikon DSLR digiscoping isn't over easy. You would have to use full manual mode, and then control exposure by using shutter speed and ISO only.

My good friend Barry has mastered the Nikon technique. He and his WEBSITE can really help you.

I hope this is ok to get you up and running, but please come back if you need more help :)

Good Luck,

Danny.
