Thanks Terry,
The Kittiwakes still return to the Claremont Pier and harbour.
Once you are set up send some pictures in!
You'll need a Canon EOS T2 adapter to join your camera to your TLS APO (Swarovski don't supply this)
Good luck,

Hi there,

You will have a choice as to how you connect your camera to the adapter.
If you choose to use the 18-55mm lens then you will need a stepping ring to attach the lens to the the adapter. I think the 18-55mm lens has a 58mm filter thread, so you would need a 58-42mm step down ring. Personally I think using a lens reduces the light to much so I would use a direct connection which is adapter to T2 ring to camera body. Thats how I connect my DSLR.
I hope this helps,

can I assume then that the ring will fit on to the 18-55 lens that the camera came with and not the 55-300. How does it know what size lens I have?

Whoop! After an hour and a half of trawling the internet and making phone calls I have finally located the DCA adapter - in Bristol!! Should be delivered before the end of the week along with a T2 ring. Just hope that when it arrives I can work out how to fit it !

Hi thanks. I had already looked at digiscope diary before I found you! It lookes like I'll be able to get the adapter and the ring from the first link you gave. Is that all I need?

Thanks Danny. Only just about to start out. Got my scope last Monday and already ahve 2 reasonably good cameras. Hoping to go to Viking in Halesworth tomorrow to see what is available. was hoping to get some tips on here and look at other peoples photos. I have an Olivon 90mm 22-68x and my cameras are Nikon D3100 and Canon Powershot sx30is. Hopoing the man in the shop will be able to advise. I do think the stupid automatic focus on the Canon will be a problem - that was the reason I bought the Nikon!
