Phone Skope - iPhone 6 Plus Field Test

Field Testing the iPhone 6 Plus

I recently upgraded my phone to the iPhone 6 Plus. Over the past few days, I've had the opportunity to do a bit of digiscoping with it attached to a Celestron Regal M2 80ED & Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 via a Phone Skope smartphone digiscoping adapter.

Canada Goose goslings in the apartment complex pond were easy test subjects. Digiscoped with a iPhone 6 Plus + Celestron Regal M2 80ED & Phone Skope adapter.

Overall, the iPhone 6 Plus performed better than any of my previous phones - Samsung Stratosphere, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, or the iPhone 5c. I'm looking forward to continuing the field testing with the Vortex Razor and with many other spotting scopes and binoculars!
