    Hello everyone,

    Being that it's hunting season (or was not too long ago) my boyfriend has been looking at alot of different rifle scope and spotting scopes.
    I've noticed that every brand of scopes has adapter rings for cameras.

    Has anyone ever used these to take pictures?
    If so what did you think and how did the pictures turn out?

    Here are some pictures with information about what I'm talking about.

    The digital camera base shows exactly how you would set it up.

    Thanx in advance

    They aren't camera lenses. They aren't corrected for aberrations or distortion. They will magnify the subject, but that's about it.
