How to digiscope with my iPhone 5 and Zeiss Diascope?


I'm looking for an adapter that would allow taking pictures with an iPhone 5 (in a Lifeproof frē case)

and a Zeiss DiaScope 85 T* FL Angled Spotting Scope with a Vario 20-75x eyepiece.

Is there any product that you recommend?



Hi Troy,

There is an adapter made by Phoneskope that will work with your iPhone and scope, though you will need to remove the iPhone from the current case it is in.

Links below are for the two parts you would need.  If we are out of stock on the phone adapter cases when you are ready to order, we would be happy to notify you when they are back in stock. Just let us know.

Best regards,

  1. I have the old style Diascope with the zoom lens.
    I simply got an I phone 5c.
    Does anybody out there know whether there is a suitable adapter for this consolidation?

    Numerous much appreciated.


  2. Hi Helen,
    Unfortunately, we don't sell an adapter for the iPhone 5c. Your best bet will be to call PhoneSkope, as mentioned above. Here is the link to their website:
