There are several reasons that you might want to be able to take pictures of something far away by connecting a digital camera to a scope of some sort. A few examples are bird watchers (boring), astronomy buffs wanting to shoot pictures of heavenly bodies (interesting), and the pervert wanting to shoot pics of that hot college girl up the street (illegal).
No matter what your plan for use of a telescopic camera set up, Minox has a new Digital Camera module that will let you shoot the picture. The Digital Camera Module (DCM) is designed to fit to a spotting scopes eyepiece bayonet. The DCM system has a magnification of 40x.
