Digiscoping anyone ?

Just wondered if anyone on here has any experience of digiscoping.
I've got a good Nikon spotting scope and am interested in trying digiscoping with my D80.
Anyone done this ?
If so what equipment would you recommend to attach the camera to the scope.

Thanks guys
As I feared, it doesn't look as if DSLR's are suited to the task.
I may sell of my 5700 (also unsuitable) and try and find something that will work.
I know the old Nikon 995 and 4500 are popular for digiscoping.
