Digiscoping advice needed

  • At those sort of distances, you're always going to have some trouble. Practice with the setup as much as possible, but keep the shutter speed up if you can (minimise the blurring effect of tiny movements), use a remote release for the shutter (or the self timer) - again, minimises vibration from you pressing buttons. Weight the tripod down to stop it bouncing (hang the camera bag on it for example). All of these will help somewhat. Also think about the time of day - if you can get a chilly early morning with sunshine full on the bird, that would be ideal to minimise haze etc
