Default Canon a60 + Telescope

Is it possible to somehow obtain an adapter which will mount to a telescope (refracting/reflector).

Is it even possible to use this camera with a telescope?

I don't plan on doing anytime soon but in the future if I do not upgrade my camera, I would like to be able to do this without having to buy 2 adapters for my 2 35mm SLRs.

I would ask this in the digiscoping forum. Its the forth from the bottom of the main forum list. In the "Misc" section. I'm sure someone there will know... or at least they'll be able to tell you the companies which make similar devices so you can look it up yourself.

ckcpower.com has an adapter for larger lense size cameras i believe.

If it has that large a lens, expect Vignetting. I'd ask in the digiscoping forum. This is exactly what they do, so they'll probably have the answers. The moderator Lin Evans is very knowledgeable and has lots of cameras, so if he's around I'll bet he can set you straight.
