Universal Adapter for Celestron Ultima 80 - Baader? (1 Viewer)

I would like to get into digiscoping and am not sure where to start. I don't want to spend a lot, as my existing equipment is quite basic, but is enough for where I am at present. I have a Celestron Ultima 80-45 scope with a 20-60x zoom eyepiece and a Samsung P1000 compact camera. Note that this camera is a simple point and click with no option for additional lenses.

I have had a quick go at holding the camera to the scope and have taken a few shots with reasonable results. In terms of a bracket, this is where I'm coming to difficulty in finding a specific one, but the Baader universal looks as though it might do the job. This also has a swing arm, so would make life a lot easier out in the field.

Can anyone confirm this will fit everything I have, or suggest an alternative? Thanks in advance.
