Default Swarovski 20-60x eyepiece question

I needed to find out about putting a Swarovski 20-60x zoom eyepiece on a non-swarovski astronomy telescope.
I had an extra Swarovski 20-60x eyepiece that I sold the other day on ebay. I stated in the ad description that this would fit the Swarovski AT-80 HD, AT-80, ST-80 HD, ST-80 spotting scopes.

The lady who purchased this is worried because she bought this to try to use on her telescope that does not have the Swarovski banonet type mount. This is in the mail enroute to her right now.

Question: Is there any type of adapter she can purchase to use this, and would it even work on a Astro type telescope.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.
Regards,
Mike

It's likely that her astro type telescope uses 1.25" bayonette type eyepieces. The Swarovski eyepiece will not work with these telescopes.

Swarovski makes an adapter to use 1.25" astro eyepieces with their spotting scopes, but no adapter that I'm aware of will allow the zoom eyepieces to be used on the astro telescope.
