I phone 5c adapter For Zeiss diascope

I have the old style diascope with the zoom lens.
I just got an I phone 5c.
Does anyone out there know if there is a suitable adapter for this combination?

Many thanks.

Kev.

If it's just for your mobile phone.....make your own like myself and others have done, cost basically nothing and the results are ace.

Cheap 1 cover off eBay and find a top that fits snug over lens, I cut half a plastic aerosol lid in half, drill hole in centre and line the camera up, fix it steady with tape.

I did something similar, there's my recent thread somewhere! I used a 62mm dia plastic carton, 3 case from amazon + superglue. Hardest part is finding the right size tube!

Hi Kev,
If you want a solid adapter that will work with any phone or any eyepiece consider the novagrade adapter. Because it is adjustable you won't need another when you get a new phone:

Thanks Doug. Not seen these ones before. Will take a look.
Sorry for the delay, I've been away on holiday. Much appreciated.
