Workshop: Phonescoping with Swarovski Optik

$20 Adult; $10 Youth

Saturday, Jan 27, 2024 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Workshop is at Patrick Ranch Museum (Map)


Have you wanted to get better pictures of birds but don't want to spend thousands of dollars on heavy camera equipment? As technology has advanced our smartphone cameras have become great tools to get amazing images of the birds we watch using the optics we already have with us -- our binoculars and spotting scopes! This workshop will give you some tips and tricks to use your phone's camera through a spotting scope or binoculars to capture some of the birds you see. We will explore the grounds of the Patrick Museum for some hands-on experience using Swarovski Optik scopes, binoculars, and adapters. This workshop is also offered on Sunday.
