I just picked up my first spotting scope. I paid 75.00 dollars for a used Bausch and Lomb LER 22x60mm that looks like it has never seen any field use. I know that they no longer are made under the B&L name but does anyone have some info on this generation of scope? It appears to have pretty decent optical clarity, multicoated lenses and very good eye relief.  
 
Also, I would like to try and get into the Digiscoping with this unit, what adapters work best for the older straight eye piece scopes? 
 
Thanks!

The Model No. is 61-2260 and in looking at the Bushnell product it looks just like the Elite line. It has the same basic body as the 15-45x60mm but without adjustable magification and it Elite label on the bell.
Bushnell Elite 78-1548P - Spotting scope 15-45 x 60
 
Based on what the fixed 22x eyepiece goes for I'im thinking I got a pretty good deal. Now If I can just figure out the adapter I'll be off to digiscopeland.

You can get a universal adopter that mounts on the eye piece of the scope and an adjustable mount for the camera in one unit. I have one but haven't tried it yet, but looks like it should work.Smile

Ach!! I feel cheated!  I paid $77.00 for mine!
 
As to digiscoping, you should be able to just hold your camera up to the eyepiece and get reasonable results.  However, these older, fixed-mag B&L's, their variable power brethren and the identical 60mm Bushnell Elite scopes (as well as similar scopes by Nikon, Burris, etc.) don't, to my knowledge, lend themselves real well to the various digiscoping adapters.
