    if you really want to try this. use the whole system from nikon. they have the ready made full system for you. you don't have to hunt the adapters yourself.

    Can hardly know what exactly is needed!
    Is it (1) DSLR, (2) Fieldscope 82 ED, (3) FSA-L1 (quantity: 1)? Is that all? Anything else to complete a full setup?

    yo
    have studied the chart.
    Easiest to start from the bottom of the chart.
    ie. start with the type of camera to be used.

    i) DSLR only requires the single piece adaptor FSA-L1 and all Fieldscopes except ED50.

    ii) Non DSLR divided into 2 groups...
    Group i) requires Wide DS + FSB series
    Group ii) requires FSA series... very complicated up to 5 components needed

    Cheers

    If u intend to use DSLR for yr scope, yr aperture will be limited to F11. Suggeset u use a PnS with manual functions. U can PM Harlequin for details. He has done taken many beautiful birding pics with great details using digiscope and a PnS.
