Digiscoping with the new Swarovski ATX scope

I'm considering the Swarovski ATX 25-60x85 Angled Spotting Scope.  Precisely what additional Swarovski components do you recommend for compatible use with a Nikon D60 camera?

Also, will this scope attach to a standard tripod mount?

Are lens covers included?  If not, do you have something to recommend?

Thanks in advance for your help and time!

Dear Clay,
Thank you for your interest in Eagle Optics and the Swarovski ATX spotting scope.  Lens covers are included with the scope, and it should be compatible with any standard ¼” tripod threading.

As for a good digiscoping setup for your Nikon D60, I’ll suggest the best setup I can think of; however, you should feel free to give us a call at 1-800-289-1132 as we can talk with you in more detail about using the Swarovski ATX with your Nikon camera. 

The setup that should work the best, however, is the Swarovski TLS-APO Digital Camera Adapter with a Nikon T2 Adapter Ring.  You would use this by removing the lens from your D60, attaching the T2 Adapter Ring to the TLS-APO Digital Camera Adapter, then attach that adapter to the body of the D60.  This will work as a lens for the camera now.  There is also a separate component of the TLS-APO that replaces the eyepiece of the Swarovski ATX and allows the camera to securely attach to the Nikon D60.
