advice on what to buy next

I have just aquired a Leica televid 77 with a 32X eyepiece. I would like to try digiscoping. My present camera an Olympus 2100UZ seems totally unsuitable for this. I would like advice on what camera, adapter, bracket etc. to buy next thereby upsetting my wife even more with the extra costs.

Glazzers,
General consenus is a Nikon 4500 if you can find one. A fine camera even if it is not used for digiscoping.That should keep your wife quite upset for a good few weeks

Hi Glazzers,

I just got my CP4500 from Buyacamera.co.uk - 385.

Don't know if that's the best deal around at the moment....
