A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Bought from a charity shop for a fiver, boxed with rechargeable batteries and a 16MB SD card (wow !) which can store all of three images at full resolution.

Looking closer, it appears to have a removable cover for the lens, but the lens itself does not come out.

There are various accessories available in the - rather old - catalogue that came with it which I assume could be fitted with a sleeve onto the end of the lens.


The blurb

Accessories
A complete range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, a close-up lens and slave flash. A waterproof case allows for underwater shooting at depths of up to 40 metres.



Question - if I got out my trusty telescope now the nights are closing in, is there a simple adapter on the market to bolt this onto the front end ?
