The Olivon U-DCA ( universal digital camera adaptor ) is in great demand !
Following recent reviews in the birdwatching press it seems almost everyone is trying to get hold of one of these. Supplies are short but we are catching up with deliveries to our dealers as quickly as we can.

Don't forget - if your camera is an SLR ( digital or film ) then you don't need the U-DCA - you should buy the standard digital camera adaptor instead ( DCA ) Olivon DCA's and U-DCA's fit all Olivon T80 / T90 series scopes
