    It's very ambitious, but I don't think it's possible. As I understand it the only lenses you can attach to the E500 are specifically made to do this.

    Is this a telescope?

    lol well i really dont know but i asume it is since it says it on the lense.I picked it up for a few bucks ( like 8 dollers ) at a yardsale i coudent belive it was so cheap.But if there is a way i can attach it using a adaptor or something that would be great.

    Yea it's possible. Search for "22-3030 DISCOVERER TELEPHOTO ADAPTER". This in combination with a t-mount should work ... I think.

    EDIT: I just realized that the Fujifilm E500 is a point and shoot. This will only work to connect it to a SLR.

    It’s possible… But likely more trouble than it’s worth. A skilled machinist could make an adapter for you, but it won’t be cheap.
