Unfortunately that's not going to work. The problem is the huge zoom on your camera makes it necessary to use very low power on the the telescope which is not usually possible to the degree necessary.

Your best bet would be to try to use something like the Olympus TCON-300 (3x) which, if you can devise a means of mounting it, would give you about as much magnification as you will get from the huge 12x zoom on your camera. This lens would put you at 36x which would give pretty good overall utility for birding, etc.

For use with a spotting scope, you would be money ahead instead of doing this to simply buy a good used CP950, CP990 or CO995 or CP4500 Nikon.

Best regards,

Lin
