Digiscoping Adapter for a Pentax Scope

Hi,
 
I was hoping I could get some advice on the best adapter that I need to get from you guys for my boyfriend's scope.
 
He has a Pentax PF-80ED angled, and I saw that you guys sell the Pentax UA-1 digital camera adapter. I am pretty sure that adapter would work for that scope but I also want to make sure that it works with his Nikon Coolpix 10X zoom. We also own a Canon EOS Rebel T3, and a Nikon D80.
 
Would the Pentax UA-1 digital camera adapter work with any of these cameras?
 
Thank you so much for your help!

Dear Rosa,
 
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.
 
Unfortunately those cameras will not work.  The UA1 will fit the Pentax, but in order to digiscope with a point and shoot camera, you need one with a below 4x optical zoom. Anything higher will not let you get a full frame image.
 
As far as SLRs go, Pentax makes a photo adapter, but it will only accept Pentax cameras, so a Canon and Nikon will not work.
 
Your best bet is probably to find an inexpensive point and shoot camera that will work on the UA1.
 
Camera shops or a place like B&H online are a good place to try with good sales on good cameras.
 
Good luck, and thanks!
