Hi Chuck.

The word teleconverter is badly chosen - sorry for that. Tele
conversion lens is the proper name for it, I think.

I have glued a Lensmate RX100 QuickChange Adapter on the front ring of
the Sony. 
This provides the camera with a 52mm thread to take filters and
conversion lenses, albeit with limited weight to prevent damage to the
camera lens zooming mechanism. 
With the proper step-up or step-down rings you can mount many
available screw-in conversion lenses. I own an old 1.5x Olympus tele
which does a good job. And I have several macro and micro-lenses
(Olympus and Raynox) which do likewise for close-up. Apart from that
the camera can take macro images without any adapter as well.

As it happens, I can also hold the camera firmly against the eyepiece
of a stereozoom microscope and get acceptable quality pictures that
way (with the camera lens set to 24mm). With a tripod mounted
telescope it will work too.
