    Hi,

    I am lost here!...

    I have been given a Nikon EDG 85D field scope. It came with an FSA-L2 adaptor.

    Is there such a thing as...

    a) An eyepiece to attach to the L2 so I can use the extra magnification?
    { Nikon EDG - FSA - Eyepiece - Eye! }

    b) An adaptor to attach to the L2 so I can use a Canon EOS camera?

    Many thanks in advance for any help offered.

    Regards.

    Z.

    a) the eyepiece would be a DSLR :p

    b) a typical Nikon F mount to Canon EF mount adaptor should do you good.

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the input. I managed to find an adaptor that work Nikon to Canon.

    I am still wondering why there appears to be no other eyepiece that attaches to the FSA-L2? Removing this adaptor seems to also remove much of the magnification from the whole system - Or am I getting that wrong?

    Thanks again for your time.

    Regards.

    The adaptor mainly serves to allow you to attach the fieldscope to a DSLR body; the magnification factor which follows the adaptor is just a collateral benefit of such use. The optical design does not allow for an eyepiece to be attached directly to the FSA-L2. Unfortunate, but that's how it is.

    You can try to look for a Nikon F mount eyepiece adaptor, but to my knowledge no such thing exists.

    Hi,

    Thanks once more for the input. Having done some research and spoken to some others, I know now that it is not possible to do what I wanted to do.

    This now leaves the option of selling the FSA-L2 adaptor. Anyone want one?

    Regards and thanks again.
