Nikon Coolpix 4500

I just received my new digital camera, the Nikon Coolpix 4500. The eyepiece adaptors from Scopetronix (for the Televue Plossl 32mm) and Vixen (for all the 1.25 Lanthanums, except the 40mm) fit perfectly into the 28mm female lens thread on the inner side of the lens tube. 

I want to use the camera for solar, lunar and planetary photography. I hope to get the first results within the next few weeks! I will keep you informed through this astro-weblog! Here are some pics from the camera and adaptors.
