Digiscoping with a Nikon D90 camera

Eagle Optics,

Do you carry a photo adapter that will work with the Kowa TSN 82SV angled spotting scope?

It would be attached to a Nikon D90 camera. Would a Nikon specific adapter also be required?

Thanks for the information,
Sally




Hi Sally,

Thanks for your inquiry.

You would need the following parts:

Kowa DA1 camera adapter

Kowa extension ring

Kowa 52mm adapter ring

In addition to those pieces, you would need to get Nikon's 50mm F/1.8 lens for your camera.

The system works by attaching the adapter to your 50mm camera lens which will mount on/over the scopes eyepiece. What you will be doing is taking a photo through the camera lens and through the 20-60x zoom eyepiece. If you are using a different eyepiece on your scope, than you can skip the extension ring above.

Here is a link to an article about digiscoping with a DSLR.

If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to email or call.

Best Regards,
Eagle Optics
