Tried out the new Phone Skope last night

Thought you guys might like this. I picked up a Phone Skope for my Samsung Galaxy S4 and here is a video of a 3 shot group at 970 yards.

Specs on this set up:

Swarovski spotting scope 20-60x80mm
Phone Skope for Samsung Galaxy S4
Alpine Gunworks Chassis
243 20" barrel shooting 105 grain Berger at 2850fps
Vortex Viper PST 4-16X50mm

Turn up the quality to 1080 and go full screen.

Re: Tried out the new Phone Skope last night

How did you like it? I have been wanting one for my iPhone 5...But waiting till I order my new spotting scope first.

Thinking I'll go with the vortex Viper HD 20-60x80, since I can't afford much more than that.

Anybody got any experiences with that scope good or bad?

Am I the only one that noticed all of those bullets hit the exact same spot?? that was either some amazing shooting or you looped the same shot 3 times? very cool phone video too!

No looping going on there. That rock is about 36" wide and I bet that group would of been 2 or 3". I really like it though, its more affordable and lighter than a nice camera and all the other stuff for digiscoping. I bought an adaptor that fits my scope very snug and I like it but you have to pull it on and off before putting the scope away. I bought the new C4 adaptor and it should be here in a few days. The C4 doesn't look like it will be as stable, but in good conditions it might be the way to go. With the quality of these phones these days and the fact that I always have my phone since it has Shooter on it these Phone Skope kits make a lot of sense.

Re: Tried out the new Phone Skope last night

Id say there is three shots right there!! Each hit had a different poff of dust.

Great shooting!!
