Default Oly C750 and eyepieces (for tele work)

I am multi-posting in desperation.

OK. Has anyone used an Olympus C750 to work with spotting scopes or eyepiecs on telescopes to take "digiscoping" shots?

I have now been to five shops in my village that calls itself a "Capital Spitty" and seen only two eyepieces that came close to suiting me.

This included a visit to a shop that I rang and _asked about 25-30mm eyepieces_, explained what I wanted, said that I had a setup that allowed me to LOOK at eyepieces, could I come in and have a look. "Yeah sure". I drove 60Km to this shop. "Oh. No. We don't have any 25 or 30 mm eyepieces. This was a _teleescope shop_!

None of these guys sell or _know anything_, as far as they will admit, about anything except one make each, and one range within that make, and if you are very very lucky they may have one on the shelf in some sizes......in a shop whose capital is tied up in dozens of multi-thousand dollar telescopes!

aaargh! They _deserve_ my Internet shopping, all of them!

Sorry. I repeat my question. Has anyone used an Olympus C750 to work with spotting scopes or eyepiecs on telescopes to take "digiscoping" shots? I would like to discuss things with them.

I'll c heck them bnoth out. Thanks. I actually need to talk about eyepieces that minimise vignetting using the Oly 750. The first site you mentioned may be able to help.
