Digiscoping- Swarovski ATX Spotting Scope with TLS APO Adapter

I recently upgraded my digiscoping setup to the Swarovski ATX 95mm and the Swarovski TLS APO adapter.  I was able to use it for the first time on Brian's Unit 6A Rocky Mtn Sheep.  I am very excited about the quality of photos that I was able to take in my first few days of use.  Cody at the Outdoorsmans has been trying to get me to upgrade for awhile now and I have to say the spotting scope is amazing.  The image clarity at 70X is actually very good.  When discussing my options with Cody, my original concern was the extra weight and size difference.  There is always a tradeoff in quality of the image and the weight of the scope.  I would say after using the scope for a few days it is by far the best spotting scope I have ever looked through.  Another friend, Trent Swanson, who is a sales rep for Swarovski urged me to try the TLS APO adapter with the Swarovski ATX.  I really like the whole system.   Trent and another friend of mine, Russ Jacoby, do a lot of digiscoping and they both shoot the Canon SL1 camera so I picked one up and that topped of the incredible system.  I have to say I am very happy with the images that I captured and I look forward to sharing them on this blog.  I am going to be taking this digiscoping setup to Mexico for Coues deer and running it through the true test.  I will still be using my Tines Up Adapter and the Outdoorsmans Digiscoping Adapter as well.  Below are photos of Brian's big ram that I was able to capture with my new setup.

On a more important note December is the time of year we are celebrate the birth of our Christ and Savior Jesus.  It seems to me that our society has so easily forgotten what this time of year is about.  Its seems myths of Santa, reindeer and obnoxious gift giving has encapsulated our country.  Isn't it funny how our thoughts and minds get so distracted on things that have no real meaning.  Santa doesn't save lives but Jesus sure does.  Merry Christmas to you and your families!

I have been using Swarovski Spotting scopes since last season and I know they are great devices. It's great to see someone else has liked them as well. Nice post!
