Celestron Ultima 80 - 80mm 20-60X Zoom Spotting Scope
When you pick up a Celestron Ultima 80 - 80mm 20-60X Zoom Spotting Scope you're picking up a high quality, 80mm aperture refractor telescope with a 480mm focal length and f/6 focal ratio. Just like its "big brothers", the astronomical telescopes, this Celestron refractor uses high quality optical glass for superior image quality and fully coats the optics for the best possible image performance.
The most compact model in the Celestron Ultima series spotting scopes, the 80 mm refractor features a 45° viewing angle and excellent mulit-coated optics packed into a portable and durable refractor design and it comes standard with an 20-60x zoom eyepiece.
This series was designed to perform well in a range of viewing situations, making it a great all-around optical instrument. You'll love it for observing nature and long distance spotting and since it is completely waterproof you can feel comfortable using it in extreme weather. The rubberized optical tube allows for subtle observation in any nature environment. Ultima spotters are a great companion for any nature or outdoor enthusiast. Soft carrying case included.
What's more, Celestron warrants this spotting scope to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for its usable lifetime. The "No Fault" provision of this warranty means that regardless of how the binocular may have been damaged or rendered unusable (fully or partially) by the Owner of the spotting scope, Celestron will repair or replace the spotting scope without any questions being asked.

What extras would I need to use with my Nikon D3200

The only accessory you would need to physically connect the Nikon D3200 is a Nikon T-ring http://www.optcorp.com/celestron-camera-t-ring-nikon.html. If you remove the rubber eyeguard from the eyepiece on the Ultima spotting scopes, it reveals a 42mm T-thread that the ring threads on to. Then, you remove the lens or front cap from the D3200 and attach the camera to the bayonet side of the T-ring. Loosening the eyepiece collar where it attaches to the Ultima scope body will allow rotation of the camera. Zooming and focusing would be handled with the zoom eyepiece and focus of the spotting scope.
