Hi

That one's easy. You can attach nearly any small to medium digital camera to any spotting scope with a universal style adapter such as the Alpen 706

I prefer rail style adapters, such as this to bracket style adapters which clamp to the eyepiece. Bracket style adapters are tougher to work around when changing zoom settings on the eyepiece and, in some cases, there isn't enough room for mounting around the eyepiece. I also like the swing away function on rail style adapters, so when you want to go back to visual mode, you don't have to remove the adapter. Lastly, rail style adapters allow you to adjust the balance when the camera is attached to the spotting scope. This is especially important when using larger cameras.

Any recommendations on a universal digiscope adapter one that will work with all spotting scopes and digital cameras?
