No digiscoping now for three weeks, I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms!
There seems to be no let up with this bad weather, every weekend has been a washout, leaving no opportunities for digiscoping.
Hopefully, according to the weather man - we may have some sun in August, but in the meantime, I've been testing the Ricoh GX100 digital camera with my Olivon T90 ED scope in my back garden every time the sun shines through the clouds.
I'm always on the lookout for a decent, new digital camera to digiscope with and I think I've found it with the Ricoh GX100. Its clip-on lens adapter fits the Olivon T90 adapter perfectly, the camera and scope seem to gell together very well. Combining the high quality ED glass of the T90 scope and the 10 megapixel camera with lots of manual features - the results are excellent.
I'm currently using my spare time to produce a detailed section with-in this website dedicated to digiscoing with the Ricoh GX100 and Olivon T90 setup, so check back soon for a full write up.
