A good cheap adapter is the Baader Microstage - it's a bit chunky but very effective. It's also universal so should still be useable if you upgrade your scope or camera in eth future. Here's a thread I started about this adapter some time ago... http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=44388

Thanks Peter, I'll see if I can get hold of one.
However, on the thread to which you posted a link, someone mentioned that it wouldn't work with a short eyepiece. The scope at the fornt on the left of this pic is mine - will it work on that eyepiece?

Have alook at my post Universal Adapter on Andy Bights Digiscoping Forum, you may find it of interest. Ernie

Hi Jyothi

from that picture I can see no reason why it wouldn't work with your scope... in fact I reckon it would work with any of the scopes in that shot!
