Yukon 20-50X50 dig camera adapter?

Great site!

I'm having fun browsing.

How do these adapters work?
How does this "newtonian" compare to the Mak's?

Hi Nelson

Folded optic Newtonians like the Yukon 20-50x50 spotting scope, can offer images comparable to a Mak of the same size and price. The Yukon is made in Russia, and like all Russian optics, it offers a lot of scope for the money.

The digital adapter, attaches over the eyepiece on one end and to the filter threads of your digital point and shoot. This particular adapter allows you to center the lens of your camera precisely over the eyepiece to control vignetting - a nice feature.
