Fuji s602 and Leica Televid APO 77

I am new to digital photography. I bought a Fuji s602. I own a Leica Televid 77 w/ 32X WA eyepiece. I would like to use them to do bird photography. So far I have not found the correct adaptors. Can anyone help??

Hi Byrder and welcome to Bird Forum from all the Moderators and admin. staff.
You've certainly come to the right place and I'm sure one of our resident experts will be able to help once they get out of their beds!! (one of the problems with the global community is the time differences).
I look forward to seeing your results once you get started.

I have the Fuji S602 - and what a stunning camera it is. But, I am reliably informed that it is not at all good for digiscoping owing to the large front element of its lens. Whilst this is in large part what makes it such a superb piece of photography kit, it also means that the front element is simply too large to use with a telescope.

You'll find more on:

Hi Byrder, as Max says (and a warm welcome to you Max from all the admin and moderators), you could try using a specialist third-party eyepiece that enables a greater number of cameras to be used for digiscoping... but good results aren't guaranteed and it's bind for a birder to use such an eyepiece if you have the very nice Leica 32x already.
Eagleeyeuk.com also produce a specialist digiscoping adapter, only 12x, but works with a number of camera not usually thought of as digiscoping cameras.
Good luck,
Andy
