60x Spotting

A tele converter or a spotting scope?

I am thinking of buying a tele converter for my FZ18 but when I saw a price of a spotting scope, I am not sure which one to buy.

The price of a 2x tele converter and a 20x-60x spotting scope is not much different.

I like to take a photo of a moon and far objects. Is a spotting scope good for taking photos of a moon?

Please suggest me which one I should buy.

Thank you.
More: The scope does not have a camera. I have to buy an adapter to mount my camera to it.

Another question is, is the lighting process from the tele converter and the spotting scope different? I noticed that there are 2 lenses in both of the equipments.

The spotting scope has a camera attached to it?

Moon shots.

The exposure needed to shoot the moon is the same as the one you would use to shoot in bright sun ... the sunny 16 rule. 1/ISO at f/16. You will also need to manually set the focus to infinity.
