    Spotting scope- smart phone adapter

    Anyone know of one that's good and will fit 50mm lense, multi phone capable?

    Was looking at the Carson one, cheers
    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

    I went to the warehouse and got me several phone plastic backs or cases at 90c each at that time then went to Bunnings got me a 50 mm pipe stop end $ 10.00 cut a hole in the pipe stop end lined them up glued them together $11.00 digiscoping.

    Used it with my phone and spotting scope to film and review fall (no mates or blind mate never saw it spotter system) of shot at the local gong shoot I have a video and sound of a girl hitting the 1450 yard going with her first shot of my 338 Lapua.

    Can be a bit fiddly I used duct tape on the inside of the pipe to make it a workable fit with the spotting scope obviously more tape the tighter the fit

    DIY works great, I gave up on my Carson some time ago because it was fiddly and floppy. Definitely not recommended.
    I turned out the inside of some drain pipe to get a gentle push fit on the spotter, which is really solid.
    Avoid camera shake with a <$5 (try AliExpress) remote shutter release which allows you to take photos without touching the phone.
    These can be wired (goes in the phone's earphone jack), or bluetooth.

    Currently have a 50mm pvc cap with some stick on foam which is a snug fit
    Drilled a hole and just need to glue a $3 phone case on it
    Won't be natural geographic material but hopefully works and not breaking the bank

    I use the phone camera delay timer for photos and video I mainly use video so set it for ten seconds to start filming, press the button get down behind the rifle take shot then review shot to see what happened.

    Will have a look at the remote shutter release on AliExpress I can see where an remote shutter release would be beneficial.
