Question about Swift Photography

Open Question

Quick Release I just bought a used Swift Spotting scope with 793TR tripod and I can not figure out hoe to use the quisk release - i have used quick releases with other tripods. When I move the lever on the quick release nothing changes. It is probably a simple solution but I would appreciate suggestions.

Which is better for use, angled or straight spotting scope?


Spotting scopes are used for several purposes which includes hunting, birding, nature viewing and landscape observation and targeting any distant objects. If this device is used for capturing photos, then the combination of a spotting scope attached with a camera would be helpful for the users. A spotting scope can also be used fort target shooting on which scoring targets on a rifle or archery range. If anyone wishes to buy a spotting scope then one must.
Angled or Straight Scope
Going for a spotting scope based on the users need, the thing that will come first is choosing one between the two - angled spotting scope or straight one.
Here is the Advantage and disadvantage of spotting scope:
Straight Spotting Scopes
Advantages
  • Easier to quickly find and track moving targets like birds
  • Easier to use if you do most of your birding or game viewing from hides or using a car window clamp
  • Easier to view objects below your own level eg at the bottom of a cliff
Disadvantages
  • Can get uncomfortable during prolonged observation periods
  • Digiscoping: depending on the weight of your camera and adapter, gravity can make the set-up less stable and there could be more chance of harming the eyepiece
  • If you're above average height, it can be more expensive to buy a tripod that needs to be stable at 170cm high and above. The larger tripod is also harder to carry about.
  • Harder to view birds in the sky
  • Harder to use if you also plan to use your scope for astronomy
Angled Spotting Scopes
Advantages
  • Generally more comfortable for prolonged observation periods
  • Easier to view birds in the sky
  • You don't need to raise the tripod so high and often depending on which tripod you have, you don't even need to raise the center column which makes a big difference regarding stability
  • Many prefer an angled for digiscoping, as you can set it at a lower height on your tripod, making it easier to keep it stable, especially in windy conditions
  • Gravity helps keep the camera in place for digiscoping making it more stable and so there is less chance of harming the eyepiece
  • Easier to use if you also plan to use your scope for astronomy
Disadvantages
  • Beginners will find the angled scope difficult to trace and detect the moving targets but they will overcome the difficulties over time by being able to handle it. It is more difficult to use when an user utilize this device mostly for birding or viewing game
  • Harder to use if you do most of your birding or game viewing from hides or using a car window clamp
  • Harder to view birds or anything else that is below your own level eg at the bottom of a cliff
