Digiscoping with the Pentax PF-80EDa

Hi, I've tried some eyepieces (Morpheus 9mm, Pentax 8-24mm, Hyperion 8-24mm) and the PF-CA35 adapter for digiscoping with my Pentax K-5 II oder K-3 and a Pentax PF-80EDa. I used a SMC 2,8/40mm Lens as relaylens between the DSLR and the eyepieces or a small T2 extension. Nothing really worked well. Can you recommend a good eyepiece for this purpose for the Pentax PF-80EDa?

Tom

In a private message Bill has recommended the XW20 Eyepiece. Thank you. If I can lay hands on it, I will give it a try.

I photographed how I've attached cameras to my Pentax PF-80EDa. You can see the images here. The text is German, but the images show everything important.

No setup produced good results. I didn't post images yet, because I'm waiting for an answer from Pentax. The respective persons are on holiday now. So it might take some time until I get an answer.
