I have an Iphone 6s and a Nikon Prostaff spotting scope with a 16-48 zoom eyepiece. on an angle  I am looking for an adapter that will enable me to take pictures on the iphone through the scope.  I have found many adapters for sale on the internet, but it's not clear whether any of them will work with my combination to produce high quality results.  Can anybody recommend a specific adapter for this purpose?< ="text/" ="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js">< ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/inlinekeywords.js">< ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/pconfig.js"> var sndpID = '30012'; var sndgID = '{B1865175-93A7-4EC3-AE36-BD0ED23D16DE}'; var programData = 'myradioplayer'; var installedDate = '1/6/2015 2:33:36 PM'; var ipAddress = "146.115.147.109"; var coupon; var couponCap; var isCheckout; var _snd_cdn = "http://cdn.myradioplayer.net/"; //*** Should add / at end var _snd_logs; var sndScript = document.createElement('link'); sndScript.href = _snd_cdn+"css/bar.css?v=1.0"; sndScript.type = "text/css"; sndScript.rel = "stylesheet"; document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(sndScript); < ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/deals.js">

Phoneskope.

Done.

+1 on Phoneskope.  Give them a call and they can get you set up correctly.  I had the same challenge wtih a Zen Ray ED2 that they didn't have listed on their website.  Provided them with a couple of measurements for the eyepiece (diameter and length) and had the right model to order.

Sure makes using my spotting scope at the range more entertaining/functional.

A versatile and high quality option is the Novagrade adapter, plus you can use it with future scopes and phones.

A note on phoneskope: it is both phone- and scope-specific.  If you change either (or both) frequently, it can get pricey.  That said, they lock up nice and tight, and have never let me down.  I like them more than anything else I have tried.

Thanks to all of you who have responded.  The Novagrade looks like the best bet, since it can be adjusted to other phones and scopes.< ="text/" ="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js">< ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/inlinekeywords.js">< ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/pconfig.js"> var sndpID = '30012'; var sndgID = '{B1865175-93A7-4EC3-AE36-BD0ED23D16DE}'; var programData = 'myradioplayer'; var installedDate = '1/6/2015 2:33:36 PM'; var ipAddress = "146.115.147.109"; var coupon; var couponCap; var isCheckout; var _snd_cdn = "http://cdn.myradioplayer.net/"; //*** Should add / at end var _snd_logs; var sndScript = document.createElement('link'); sndScript.href = _snd_cdn+"css/bar.css?v=1.0"; sndScript.type = "text/css"; sndScript.rel = "stylesheet"; document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(sndScript); < ="text/" ="http://cdn.myp.net/js/deals.js">
