There is a little learning curve to getting it set up right.
But there is also a big difference in the clarity due to the quality of glass your shooting through.

Have a swaro spotter and expensive phone. Not gonna go cheap and buy some universal adaptor version. PhoneSkope brand works easily and perfectly, I leave it on my ohone thoughout a hunt or scouting trip so taking photos is quick and easy (And thus I use it more).

You might hit up @6mm Remington He has a wifi-based scope for his and I thought the pictures were great. YOu would lose out on the optical zoom capabilities of the phone but those aren't spectacular anyway.

I'm very happy with this so far. It can be had for about $76.00 on Amazon. I paid $96.00 at Sportsmans.
It will attach to virtually every spotting scope out there. No need to purchase
other adapters for different spotting scopes.
If you upgrade your phone you will likely have to purchase another phone adapter for that specific phone. Not always but possibly.
Your zoom and magnification are handled by the spotting scope. Focus is handled by the spotting scope also. You see what the spotting scope is looking at in real time and you adjust the focus accordingly. The phone is used to take the pictures or videos of your choosing.
You can have your buddies download the SME Spot Shot app on their phones. They too can look at their phones with the WiFi signal sent by the Spot Shot and see the exact images that your are. Multiple phones at a time can do this.
It weighs 10.6 ounces. My I-phone weighs 10.4.
I can be up to 82 yards away from the spotting scope with the Spot Shot attached and still see images in real time. Signal is lost after that distance.
It comes with a soft case. I chose to put the charge cord, some sense cleaner, and a sense cloth in the soft case. I purchased a round cylinder shaped tube that is for putting water bottles in to be used to put the items in the soft fabric holder with the lens cleaner and other items inside. The Spot Shot will fit on top of that. This will afford some cushioning and protection carrying it around in a day-pack or vehicle.
The Spot Shot is supposed to hold a charge for 8-10 hours. I have been using it a few times over the last several days and have not had to charge it again, at least not yet.

Get the phone skope adapter for your specific iphone and spotter, as it's crucial to be able to get it off and on fast and have it line up. The most important addition is the remote as it allows you to capture images with no bump to the apparatus which eliminates any blurred images. As mentioned above, video is super as you can go back and take images from whatever angle captured within the montage.
