That looks like something my 3d printer could crank out in like 15 minutes. How much they charge for that thing?

I have one and love it. I have been using it for several years in the field and I take it every time we are out scouting or hunting. It was real nice to have when the kids were younger. Allowed me to show them animals we had glasses up without them having to try and find it in the spotting scope. When the kids started competing in archery I used it to watch there shot placement from back in the crowd. Well worth the money. My biggest recommendation would be to get the attachment piece specifically for your optic. I used the adjustable one for a long time until I finally got the one made for my spotting scope. It definitely made a big enough difference to justify buying the extra piece. So much easier to just toss it on there and get it adjusted right.

I can see it being useful in the right circumstances but screen will wash out in the occasional bright sunshine AZ gets.

I have wanted to get something like that, I have a telescope and it would be nice to get pictures.
I had not thought about using it on binos. Gives me another reason to get one!!

I have one for each of my spotting scopes. They are expensive for being a small molded piece of plastic but they work well.

They are pretty nice at the 50 -100 yard PRGC range. Saves walking.

We have been using the phoneskopes for awhile now and they are great for video and pictures of game animals. Much better than the old way of trying to hold still while taking pictures

I had a bad experience with their customer service and fitment issues on my swarovski spotter. I now use Outdoorsmans products. More expensive but better quality and their customer service is much better.
