Which the best choice for less than 180$ to use a digital point and shoot camera?
The LOMO astele 60, Bhushnell trophy 20-60X65, Konus konuspot 20-60X80 or Celestron ultima 18-55X65?
Which of these uses interchangeable 1.25” eyepiece?
which the best choice for conditions of low luminosity?
Which other marks and models for less than 180$ you recommend for digital point and shoot camera?

Only the LOMO can use interchangeable telescope eyepieces.

All of these can be used with a digital point and shoot camera by using a universal digital adapter such as the Radian, ... apter.html or the Barska, ... aptor.html

Of these, I like the Celestron Ultima 65 by a slight margin for digiscoping by virtue of its larger eyepiece lens. All will be similar in low light performance.
