I have the T mount (#64) available from Meade to mount an olympus camera to the ETX series scopes but it doesn't seem to fit the my (new) E300...

Should it fit? any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated

Is the adapter designed for Olympus' OM film cameras, or 4/3 digital cameras (that's used on the E-1, E-300, E-500).

They have different bayonet mounts.

There is an OM to 4/3 adapter available if that's the case, but you should find out if this is the situation.

Pretty sure it's designed for OM... So I'd need the 4/3 to OM to the T64 i already have.... any idea where I can get one of those?
