How do I mod a monocular to give my Nikon Cool Pix increased telephoto capability? Answered

Red tailed hawks have moved into my neighborhood.  My only camera is my Nikon Cool Pix.  I've learned how to take closeups with a jewelers' loop.  How do I mod a monocular to use as a small telephoto?

You don't have to mod the monocular at all. You just need to get the camera lens in line with the sight path and at the correct distance and you'll be able to use it.

If you can mount it on a frame it'll be easier to use.

Something like this.

Several of the telescope sites have articles similar to this.
