Question Digiscoping with a Konica Minolta Dimage z2

HI,

I own a Konica Minolta Dimage z2 (4 Mpixel, 10x optical ,4x digital f2.8 to f8)

Would my camera be suitable for digiscoping?

I read somewhere that the Z series does not work well why would that be?

Im really looking to get into digiscoping and I dont really what to change my camera it is a great camera loaded with every settings (A-S-P-M modes + presets) and manual mode and focus.

Thanks in advance for your advice and comments.

Ok, I found answers :

I went to a telescope/ scope / binoculars store and I tried several scopes and bought one with filtered eye piece so I am able to screw in my Camere with a 52mm adapter that I already had anyways and...

IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM

The scope I bought have removable eye piece and in fact the threaded filter is at the base of the scope and an adapter scew in over the eye piece... ... I'll put a picture

Quite a lot af vignetting but by zooming in I get completely rid of it.

THe scope is a WATER PROOF ACUTER ST16 - 48X65A - I payd: 156.00CAN$

Pictures for you guys soon


PS: THANKS TO EVERYBODY THAT TOOK THE TIME TO READ MY POST EVEN IF NOBODY WAS ABLE TO ANSWER, I UNDERSTAND I'M USING A NON-PUPOLAR CAMERA...

I LOOKED ALL OVER INTERNET FOR ANSWERS AND IT SEEMS LIKE NOBODY USE A DIMAGE Z2 FOR DIGISCOPING AND I CAN TELL YOU GUYS IT IS QUITE A GOOD CAMERA WITH 10X OPTICAL ZOOM 4MPIXELS, F2.8 @8 ISO 50 TO 400, MANUAL FOCUS + AF WITH APO LENS....
