The case is waterproof, but the scope is not. The manual that comes with it clearly states that the scope is NOT waterproof.

This scope is NOT waterproof... and the case is water resistant, but not fully waterproof. I recommend keeping both as dry as possible.

There is a bracket that attaches to the scope. The bracket has a screw to attach a camera. Same set-up as on tri-pod. The bracket brings the camera right behind the scope in a secure fashion. Have not used it yet but it looks like it will work well with a variety of digital cameras.

Yup, it comes with a little bracket that screws into the bottom of the camera. I used it a few times and works great, as long as you have it on the tripod or a solid non-moving surface.

Digiscoping is the ability to place a small, point & shoot digital camera on a bracket you can mount at the spotting scope eye piece to take pictures using your spotting scope. They will not be real high quality pictures as this is not a true camera ready lens, but works fine for hobby picture shooters on wildlife at a distance.

This scope does not have night vision and it does come with the carry case. If you are wanting a night vision scope be ready to fork out some serious $$$. They are not cheap. Night vision = Morgage Payment

This scope does NOT have night vision. The scope comes with a very nice hard case with excellent inside padding. Also a camera attachment that affixes to the lens which allows you to take digital photes through the scope! I have not yet tried that feature.

answer 2
Absolutely YES! with the 20-60 power zoom, you could likely identify bucks and does from much longer distances IF you have the time to set up and spot them. Remember... you will likely need to refocus after changing the zoom... but it is very quick and easy.
I bought the scope to mainly use at the target range. It will be easy to see the bullet holes in the target at 100-150 yards. BTW... The pull-out sun shade on the front of the scope is handy whenever the sun is at a bad angle for viewing.

According to the documentation with the scope it is a Lifetime warranty. Albeit if you have issues after the first few years you will probably just buy a new scope.
