Great photo and film clip.

If I understand this correctly, you took a Zeiss gun scope sight and placed it in front of your camera which had an 11-27mm lens. The sight was not attached in any way to the lens. Is this correct?

Thanks,
No, it's a Zeiss spottingscope (Some other brands also do well) mostly used for birding etc.
The Nikon 1 J2 with 11-27mm lens is placed with an adapter in front of the 20-60X  eyepiece
of the scope. This makes a telelens with a maximum reach of 4300mm.
(Compared to 24x36mm photography) Offcourse a steady tripod is needed.
This 'trick' is called 'digiscoping'. If you use this word in a searchmachine you'll find out more.
