I have just managed to purchase a used Nikon P6000 with the intention to have a bash at digiscoping.
I have looked at loads of adapters and think that maybe the ones that swing away when set up are the way to go... what do you think?
I'm a bit of a tight wad so dont want to spend to much if i can help it.
This is what i'm looking at... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
Anyone using one? what do you think?
Gratefull of any advice.

That and many other universal adaptors would do a job but you might get frustrated with the rather cumbersome nature of all that plastic/metalwork bolted to the eyepiece.
The P6000 has a thread around the lens housing which will allow the attachment of an extension tube. That could be fitted to a push fit adaptor or eyepiece replacement adaptor for various eyepieces/scopes out there. Probably a neater although more costly solution.
Might be worth checking SRB Griturn's web site - they have a range of options including a P5000/P6000 tube.
