Lecture: Wednesday February 7, 7:00-9:00p.m.
Location: Phinney Neighborhood Center, Room 6 in the Blue Building

Appropriate for ALL audiences.
Learn how to turn your smartphone camera and binocular/telescope into a formidable and (relatively) affordable bird photography tool in this workshop. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of professional digital photography equipment (e.g., DLSR with a telephoto lens) vs. the digiscope, freehand vs. mounted digiscoping, binocular vs. telescope digiscoping, commercially available vs. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) digiscopes, and more! Nathaniel will share the tricks that he has learned over 5 years of active digiscoping in the Pacific Northwest as well as the current generation of his DIY diginocular and digiscope prototypes. There will also be some time for practice with your own equipment (i.e., binoculars, telescope, smartphone) and evaluation of its digiscoping potential. By the end of this class, you will either be ready to construct your own smartphone digiscope or know where to find a functional commercial setup.
Materials to bring: Notebook, binoculars and/or spotting scope (optional), smartphone (optional).
