Default Digiscoping and a Canon A70 - Need some help

Hello,

I have a Canon A70 and am looking to purchase a Swarovski AT 80 HD. My question is, what adapter do I need to mate them together? I've been doing a lot of research on websites and I see most poeple use Nikon's. I can't seem to find a clear answer to my question. Thanks in advance for any help.

Althought I don't do digiscoping myself, I'm seriously considering it. One of the companies which makes good adapters for cameras is:

http://scopetronix.com/

They do have a mounting system for the A70, look on this page:
http://scopetronix.com/dtsystems.htm#canon

Personally, I'd email them and ask about what it would take. Sure, they'll recommend their products, but it's a start. I believe others on this forum use their products, so maybe someone else can chime in about quality and stuff.

Thanks Eric and Geordie,

The Scopetronix page seems to have possibilities but, the LE-Adapter seems a bit pricey. I'm not sure if the Scopetronix adapter would attach to the Swarovski 20X60 eye piece. It's not mentioned in thier ad. I was hoping that someone that visted this board may have used an Canon A series with a Digiscope and can give me some advise. I'm also concerned about the Camera's lens barrel hitting the scope. As it extends at wide angle and retracts when zoomed. I don't want to get an adapter that will cause my Camera to have a problem if I accidentally hit the zoom control while hooked up to the scope. I'll have to call Scopetronix and see if they have the answers. Again, thanks for the help. Any other advise is greatly appreciated.
