Olympus TG-2 and digiscoping
Apr 22, 2013

What I like about the TG-2 besides its ruggedness, is its ability to accept auxillary lenses sans adapter tubes.  Next is the fact that the lenses do not extend; making close-coupling possible and no vignetting!  Here is an image of a dollar bill photographed from a distance of 10 ft, using a Questar Telescope.   http://www.barrie-tao.com/afocal.html

Next is to see how it works for lunar and planetary astrophotography, and birding.
