A perfect match: Questar and Olympus TG-2
      #5814948 - 04/22/13 10:24 AM Attachment (59 downloads)

The Olympus TG-2 is advertised as a rugged outdoor, underwater capable point & shoot camera. It is lightweight, 12MP, and has the ability to add auxially lenses. The cute thing that attacted me to this camera is that the lenses do not extend, so close coupling is easy with no adapter tubes; just a couple of step rings. Here the TG-2 is attached afocally using a Scopetronix 18mm EP. The image fills the view with no vignetting at minimal zoom.
This is a great camera for Questar, birding, videos, etc. Image of dollar bill was 10 feet away.

Thanks for the tip Barry.

I've been considering a good P/S for my Questar.
