Field-Testing the Meopta MeoPix iScoping Adapter

MeoPix_001Nothing gets me pumped for hunting season like a velvet-clad, fat-bellied mule deer buck glistening like a red sausage in an alpine basin miles from anyone but me.

While the isolation is great, I'd love to be able to give my friends and family a sneak peek at the steaks they'll be gobbling come fall.

Thanks to Meopta, the Czech maker of high-end optics, I can now send them tasty teasers. Meopta has come out with a unit that attaches an iPhone to your spotting scope or binoculars. They call it the MeoPix iScoping Adapter.

Simply put, it is a bracket that holds your iPhone 4 or 4S centered against the ocular lens of your spotting scope.


In addition to capturing 8-megapixel images, my favorite feature is that multiple people can view the image simultaneously on the iPhone's screen. No more wasted time struggling to find and refocus the image on a shared spotting scope. To test this feature out for ourselves, we took the MeoPix down to our parking garage overlooking the Illinois River.

For more kicks, we switched the iPhone's camera to video, and we weren't disappointed; just like the photos, we got great quality from our shots of the nearby bridge.

Take your venison loin to a whole new level with this delicious reverse-seared stuffed elk backstrap. Smoking the backstrap on a Camp Chef Woodwind pellet grill first, then finishing it on a blazing-hot skillet or flattop, creates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak with a crispy, seared exterior. The filling of diced mushrooms and creamy Boursin cheese adds a whole new level of amazing flavors to an otherwise classic smoked venison loin.
