Digiscoping adapter questions for my Vortex Razor scope

I purchased the Vortex Razor HD 16-48x65 Angled Spotting Scope last year. I am interested in purchasing an attachment for my  to allow me to digiscope with it. 

On your web site it appeared that you had an adapter that was suitable for this camera.  I wanted to check with you before I ordered the adapter. 

Also, I have also read  that there is a digiscoping adapter for iPhones.  I have iPhone 6 -- do you sell these adapters?  Do you know that they can provide good pictures?




Dear Jeri,
Thanks so much for your inquiry.

For digiscoping, a point-and-shoot camera needs to have an optical zoom of 4x or less. While I'm not familiar with your Canon Powershot, I looked its specs up online, and it has an optical zoom of 30x. While it might be a fine camera, it will not work for digiscoping, unfortunately.

The iPhone 6 will take amazing photos! It is great for digiscoping. You have two choices for iPhone 6 adapters that I am aware of. First is the Kowa TSN IP6 iPhone 6 Digiscoping Bracket which will fit your Razor.  The second is to go to Phoneskope also makes an iPhone 6 adapter that will fit the Razor scope.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

All the best,

Eagle Optics
