Welcome to PhoneSkope
PhoneSkope! Two words put together that mean you can easily use your Smartphone on a telescope for picture taking, video making or simply viewing. PhoneSkope cases add just a couple of millimeters extra to the size of your Smartphone while at the same time naturally allow you to use all the normal functions of your phone.
PhoneSkope Smartphone cases are used in conjunction with a C-3 Dedicated Adapter or the U1 Mini or U2 Universal Adapters for a multitude of eyepieces on quality optics.
Using your quality optical devices including Spotting Scopes, (not recommended for use on riflescopes), Microscopes, Astronomical Telescopes, Monoculars and many Binoculars (a tripod is strongly recommended!), you can now use your smartphone's camera to take quality pictures and videos. Or, if with friends, share the image on your phone's screen.
Nowadays, most of us do not go anywhere without our smartphone and so using PhoneSkope on your optical equipment you have an alternative lightweight and very convenient method of capturing images and videos without having to carry a camera.
With PhoneSkope's design it's a simple set up. First, choose your phone case, then either a C-3 dedicated eyepiece adapter to fit your eyepiece, or either the U1 Mini Click-lock adapter that will fit numerous eyepieces from 1.2" to 1.8" or the U2 Universal Click-lock adapter that will fit numerous eyepieces from 1.7" to 2.3" in diameter, enabling you to fit your smartphone to a variety of Spotting Scopes, Microscopes, Astronomical Telescopes, Monoculars and Binoculars.
