Hi Kevin,
Just curious about your current digiscoping setup. I'm thinking about upgrading my scope to the 883 and was wondering what you think the best digiscoping combo is.

Thanks!

Thanks Stu were loaded with them now.

Nick the Canon Powershot S90 is the best cam out there now but the only catch is there are no Filter threads
so you would have to use either the Kowa-TSN-D3 or D4 with the Kowa TSN-883 to complete the connection.

Thanks much Kevin! I may be able to get a used Nikon P6000 for a good price. Which connectors/adapters would I need for that camera...and this big question: is it a good camera for the 883?

Thanks Kevin. Have you tried to make a homemade adapter for the S90 to your Kowa?
