    BTW I did some telephoto testing with a binocular before but—although the image quality is not bad—it's not quite practicable:

    I don't expect anything so far but Rollei is a reputable brand and it would be worth the tripod and the mount alone. I have a Gorillapod mini tripod for iPhone but it's not very stable.

    ^ Thanks. Interesting. It's not Rollei (but "Photojojo") and the features seem to be the same.
