Digiscoping Oct 13th, 2011

Well...I know I said in my last posting that my repurchase of a scope was coming down to the Vortex Razor....and I believe that to be an excellent scope after looking at the 09 reviews of higher end scopes. That clearly shows it is.

But, I had a call from a store in Montana that had a demo Swaro 80 HS ATM plus a eyepiece for a real good price and couldn't pass it up. ... I like the Swaro Helical focus wheel...jto me that helps as I have a little bit of arthritis in my right thumb and sometimes twisting caps or...in a scopes world, turning a knob, just plain hurts. So...the larger helical wheel on the Swaro is perfect.

Also, I love the styling, the rubber armor feel...the locking eye piece...and the quality of the image. All in all, perfect for me so I picked up another one after selling my ATS just a month or so ago. Gees....am I a ping pong ball or what!...?

So it should be arriving next week, just in time to do some coastal bird watching on the Oregon Coast, end of October...I am excited.

I am breaking out my S90 Canon and will do some digiscoping where needed. Although the camera makes for a better overall image...the scope slows me down and forces me to observe bird habitat and the environment....I like it.

Digiscoping has its place...just as walking around with a pair of bino's has or taking a camera and lens. One just has to know when to do each one ....
