K10 to Bausch and Lomb spotting scope ?

I am trying to use my K10 for long distance (e.g. birds, boats, etc.). A friend has an excellent scope and I want to see if I can "marry" it to the excellent camera.

The scope is a Bausch and Lomb 62-0080 Elite (circa 2002). Bushnell, who bought this B & L line tell me that they no longer have the required adapter, the Bausch and Lomb 62-0050.

Can anyone suggest where I might find this item (other than EBay, which I wil try) or how I might "adapt" if I cannot find one.

I purchased the T-adapter for Pentax, on recomendation from folks here, but it does not fit the scope.

B & H is wonderful. They searched everywhere but were not sure if their adapter would fit, but I ordered it just to see. It arrrived (free shipping!) in less than 24 hours !! (NYC-Cambridge,MA)..

Fits the t-mount perfectly but, --alas-- my scope eye piece is too small, so I need to "adapt the adapter" or seek the illusive Bausch and Lomb 62-0050. Perhaps the Holy Grail may be easier to find in this age of rapid outdates!
