Looking for an adapter for my Zen Ray ED2 for my iPhone 6.  Primary purpose is to use it at the range.

Appreciate any recommendations on an appropriate adapter.  I've read comments on Phone Skope, but they don't have a standard model that works with the Zen Ray.  I have a question in to them asking for their recommendation.

I am also aware of Carson's HookUpZ Universal adapter but it doesn't seem as secure as I would like.

I see that Swarovski, Kowa, Meopta and others have specific adapters for their spotting scopes, but doubt they are compatible with my ED2.

Thanks for contacting us.  The ZEN ED2 spotting scope is compatible with most of the Swarovski eyepieces. It is not compatible with astronomical eyepiece since those eyepieces are not optimized to work with spotting scope for daylight use.

We will also introduce 30x wide angle eyepiece in the future

Thanks

Perhaps the Swarovski adapters will work.

Zen-Ray answered my questions.  The Swarovsi AP-i6 adapter will work with the ED2.

Still curious on others' recommendations on the Phone Skope, iSpotter or Carson's HookUp ... etc.

I use Phone Skope with my Zen-Ray ED2 and it works quite well.

Thanks Ilya.  Did you have to go the custom route or pick the appropriate Swarovski spotter?  They don't list Zen Ray as one of the options and they have multiple Swarovski options.

Feedback from the Phone Skope folks is to provide the three measurements and assume you did the same.

I primarily use their universal adaptor since I also use it when I test different spotters.

However, I do recall measuring the eyepiece of the ED2 and matching it to one of the Swarovski adaptors.  That would likely be a more secure fit than the universal, but it works for my purposes.

Perfect.  I'll do some measuring and adjust from there.

Carson looks like and interesting concept but would probably want to zip tie it to the scope.

According to Swarovski, the PA-i6 won't work with the Zen Ray ED2 but at $199 list, doubt it was a contender anyway.
