Digiscoping with a Nikon V1

Eagle Optics,

I have just received the Nikon V1 camera for my birthday. I want to digiscope with it. I have a Kowa 82SV angled scope with the 20-60x eyepiece. What additional hardware will I need? The camera has the Nikkor 10-30mm kit lens.

Thanks,
Sally



Sally,

Thanks you for your interest in Eagle Optics.

The first thing you’ll need is a fixed 50mm lens for your Nikon V1. You can’t digiscope with the zoom lenses.

Once you get it, you will also need these pieces:
Kowa DA-1 Digital Camera Adapter
Kowa Extension Ring z7/z9
Kowa 52mm Adapter Ring
(The 50mm camera lenses almost universally have a 52mm thread on the end of them, so you'll need that size adapter ring).

Thanks,
Eagle Optics
