Default Celestron Ultima spotting scope with FZ38?

I have just bought a Celestron Ultima 80 spotting scope and would like to use it with my FZ38 for taking shots of the moon among other things. The manufacturer states that it has a built in T ring and that this is accessable by removing the rubber eyepiece cup, they also state that the camera manufacturer will have varying T ring adapters for their cameras that must be used to connect to the scope. Has anyone used this camera with a spotting scope if so is there an adapter available for my camera? I believe you can get a universal adapter, but I am sure this is for a compact point and shoot camera.

You can get more info here

But I don't think they make one for the FZ38.

Thanks Clint, I had a look on the manufacturer site, but could find nothing.
I wonder if this would fit:http://www.ukoptics.co.uk/panasonic-...z38-p-921.html

Maybe I can't get a T ring as the FZ38 is not a DSLR.

I guess that would depend on the thread size of the Celestron.

The LA3 adapter is what you use to attached the Macro and tele lens (LC55 and LT55 Mount Diameter: 55mm)

Just purchased this T Mount - Filter Thread adapter 56mm - 46mm. Hope it works and gives some good results.
