Understanding Digital Camera Attachments for a Kowa Scope

 I'm looking to attach a camera to my Kowa scope and it is not clear, to me anyway, from the descriptions, which adapter I need.

I have the Kowa TSN-821M with the 20 - 60 zoom eyepiece (82mm). I would like to be able to attach my Panasonic LX5 and eventually even my Sony A700. For my LX5 camera do I need the TSN-DA10 or the TSN-DA-1? I realize I will need an adapter ring for my camera. Are those 2 items all I need to attach my camera?

Thanks for your help,

Dear Susan,
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.

You'll use the Kowa DA1 Digital Camera Adapter for either setup. Since you have the zoom eyepiece on that scope, you'll also need the Kowa Digital Camera Extension Ring Z7/Z9 Eyepiece.

With the Panasonic, you'll also need (assuming it doesn't have filter threads) this Vortex PS-100 Point-n-Shoot Digital Camera Attachment to provide it 37mm threads, and you would buy the Kowa 37mm ring to go with it.

For your Sony, you'll need to get (if you don't have) a fixed 50mm lens. The zoom lenses won't work. Once you have that, you'll want the Kowa 52 ring (those 50mm lenses almost universally have 52mm threads).
