The Smartphone Scope Mount Spotter is a new, innovative & easy way to capture video through your scope! The Spotter connects ANY spotting scope to ANY smartphone with either our patent pending magnet attachment system or a universal clamp.
How it started
(by inventor Ben Kuehl)
The Smartphone Scope Mount was invented deep in the Northwoods of Wisconsin when I took a picture of a doe walking past me to show my son... and the thought occurred to me: what if I could shoot video through my scope with my smartphone?
Soon after my friend Cody helped me out with the prototypes, and the Smartphone Scope Mount was born.
In the months that followed, we listened to the feedback from our friends, family and everyone else on how to improve our prototype.
Which brings us to the Mark II series... a highly advanced design featuring a lightweight carbon tube, integrated charging bank with 3000mAh of power, quick release cam lock and an innovative magnet attachment system.
How it works
The Smartphone Scope Mount Mark II series was designed to work on nearly every spotting scope (Mark II Spotter) or hunting scope (Mark II Tactical) and allows you to capture incredible telephoto images with any smartphone.
The Spotter is attached using a 1/4-20 UNC tripod thread. The Tactical mounts to your scope with a picatinny ring mount for a 25mm or 30mm tube scope.
Capturing images through your scope is like having a telephoto lens on your smartphone!
Every Smartphone Scope Mount Mark II includes everything you need to capture exciting images through your scope with your Smartphone's camera!

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenges is gearing up production and inventory. This requires capital not to mention time and building space. We need to purchase many different materials. We also need to purchase create and refine assembly equipment and work stations. We hope will also need to hire and train workers to keep up with demand. All of the models you see in our videos are hand built right here in Dane WI. We are also trying our best to source every component possible here in the USA. So far we have been able to find many local suppliers including the injection molding of the MARK 1. We are striving to make this project benefit our community and country.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
