    I have a Nikon N50 AF camera. I would like to photograph a high school
    hockey tournement. Someone lent me this lens. I wrote down the markings

    Tasco World Class Zoom Lens (9000T on the tripod mount)
    60MM zoom on the side
    60MM 15X - 60X zoom and lastly
    Telephoto Lens 1000 - 4000M zoom.

    Questions :
    I know I need some kind of lens converter, but which one ?
    Can I hook up this lens to this camera ?
    I will probably not have autofocus, but will I be able to follow the
    action with this ?
    I could not find any links to Tasco lens, I take it they are probably old.

    Any help, pointers, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    This is an astromomical telescope. The focal length is way way way to long
    for your intended use.

    Thanks Jim.
    Maybe I'll just watch some stars, instead of Hockey Stars :)

    It will be interesting to see how the shots come out. You should be able to
    get very large images of the moon.
    You can learn more about astro-photography by reading Michael Covington's
    book.

    If you can, find a AF 85mm f1.8 lens (or a AF 135mm f2 DC-Nikkor lens)
    for your hockey photography.

    The gear you listed will never let you focus quick enough for any
    decent action shots. Of course, you can shoot the goalie's nose
    easily.
