Default Telescope and Mount for P&S?

Any suggestions for a "telescope" and mount for a P&S, (Canon SX230)? Getting sick of not quite being able to get the birds that stay just out of range...

Thanks!

G'day Jud

This is one of many places you might look into
http://www.eagleoptics.com/

They also have adapters to clamp small pocket-sized P&S cameras onto the eyepiece of the spotter scopes

Have you looked through the digiscoping forum on this site ?

All about attaching various P&S cameras to normally non compatible scopes and lenses.
Lot of people shared their set-ups and various results.
