Phil if you go to the Eagle Optics link goes over to the left side and scroll down to questions and you will see their return policy. They have an 800 tel. # so if you want you can call. The fellow Tom knows a lot about digiscoping and yes Wounded Mallard is right they do make them for Nikon as well as most SLR cameras as it is just a simple adaptor. I have a Nikon one for my telescope.
If you got $4000.00 to spend take a look at the new set up from Carl Zeiss.
Beautiful. http://www.eagleoptics.com/index.asp?pid=4919
The $4000.00 includes the 85MM Zeiss scope. This is really tempting to any birder.
Cost more but your getting the best and also on that Eagle Optics home page is Mikes digiscopeing and he had a chance to try this rig out and he said all great things about it.

Thanks again, Lou. I may buy a DCA and try it with a DSLR.
Phl I take it you have a Swarovski scope as this adaptor I am pretty sure works and fits only this scope. Any SLR camera can be used but you need a small lens with a large opening like 1.7 to 2.8. This allows you to view through the scope just like a lens was on the camera. I would ask about how the light is when viewing through the scope and be sure its not to dark and also if with the lens on does the AF work? I may give him a call today or tomorrow and ask. I'm kind of tempted my self. It would be nice to have a photo with 8 tp 12 MP of resolution from 20X.
