    I have a spacemaster spotter, I want to get something to hold my phone. Ebay sells something for a bushnell spacemaster that says it's for phones . Anyone specifically use spacemasters and their phone? I dont want any universal type I saw one and wasn't really happy. Here is the title for the part they sell, I unsure what this connects to and with what else I'd need?
    Phone Skope Optic Adapter, fits Bushnell Space Master, Black, Small C3-053-A.

    Contact phone scope for questions on what all you need. I have the phone adapter and it clicks into a mount adapter for the scope eye piece.

    Mine is for a Cabela’s Krotos and I like it but it’s not flawless. Shadows on one side pretty badly

    Yea I saw shadowing when I tried the universal, I also saw phone skope setups that looked flawless and very nice fitting

    IMG_1268.JPG 1, got HookUpz 2.0. Fits most phones and I've used it on 4 different spotting scopes. Takes a minute to adjust, but I'm very happy with it. Took this from 1 1/2 mi. through a 20-80x80 on a desert bighorn hunt last December.

    I use the soft side of adhesive Velcro to tighten the seal to my spotter, this eliminates the edge shadowing.

    I like how the phone skope is piece specific to your parts for exact fitment. I don't like the fact that if I buy one for the phone I have now if I upgrade the phone I'm stuck with that case. I dont know if the universal models phone skope offers will go tight enough for spacemaster eyepiece's? I do need the Small C3-053-A. Adapter.

    Buy a novagrade, it’ll fit any phone and spotter. It’s a little heavy but worth it. It’s not cheap either.
