On our first full day out in Kazakhstan, we stopped at one place with lots of Black Larks and a few Pallid and Montagues Harriers. Just getting ready to leave the spot, I had already packed my regular digiscoping setup in to the mini-bus when a beautiful male Montagues Harrier came around. I rushed over to Andy who had a TLS800 setup and stole it from him, getting a few quick snapshots of the harrier.
The complete setup was as follows:
Swarovski STM80HD scope, TLS800 adapter, and Canon EOS 5DII
This is a similar setup to that which I used to photograph the Black Kites here in Austria a couple of months ago.
I am not completely sure if this is technically digiscoping as the camera has no separate objective, and the telescope has no ocular, but it is basically using the straight scope as an 800mm equivalent manual focus telephoto lens.
