It does strike me as odd that there is as far as I can tell no reasonably priced astro adaptor for this scope.
No! I have the opposite, an adapter which allows the very nice Leica 20-60 zoom eyepiece to be used as a 1.25" eyepiece in an astro scope. (For sale, if anyone wants it ....).

When I was looking round, I could not find a cheap version of what you are looking for anywhere.
