The better quality of lens you can find, the better your results will be. Telescope lenses tend to be fairly well made, so I have found that they work pretty well, although they also tend to get a black fretted circle around your image unless you get it positioned just so. Another idea is to see if you can find some old camera lenses at a retail shop. Since no one uses film based SLR cameras anymore, you can find high quality lenses for less than $10, or maybe even a few dollars. Try placing the lens both forward and backward in front of your camera's lens.
Quick questions so is it the telescope Eye piece that gives the magnification, or the bigger lens at the end? I not good with the techincal talk I just can see something and build it. I just got a camera and been experimenting with macro, HX300 Camera with 50x Optical ZoomDSC-HX300 Any advice on how to make this a better macro camera. I was trying magnifying glasses, so far going ok but really interested using telescopes
