Good point. Thanks, John.

Another thing to remember is that your tripod plays a large part in how steady your setup is. A better tripod and head will go a long way for stability.

You'll have to check the market for that feature on a camera, as the market is ever changing, but most small point and shoots do not. However, you can always use the timer to take a pic if your subject is co-operating. A more common feature to be found on digitals to help with the shakes, these days, is image stabilization. This will certainly help.

Lastly, keep the magnification on the camera to a minimum and use the scope to get the magnification. Even there, use it minimally. Remember, you will always be able to do some cropping when you edit.

I also have a question about the best digiscoping camera. I have recently purchased and have just started to use an Alpen 20-60 X 80 scope and the Alpen camera adapter. I got them hooked up along with my daughter's Kodak EasyShare 813 (8 MP), which I am trying to make sure the setup works before I purchase a my own small point and shoot camera. Any touch of the setup creates a good deal of vibration. It is difficult to get a picture that is not blurry. Are there any small cameras that have a remote or cable shutter activation?
