there are a few different methods of making a DSA for your camcorder but this is how i made mine.

i use a piece of plastic pipe for the body some slices of pipe cut to use as shims and a macro filter set of four rings these come with lenses which i remove to leave just the rings which screw together to form a short tube (you may need a stepup ring also depending on the thread size in the camcorder's lens)
the short tube that is made is clamped into the plastic pipe using the shims where needed and electrical tape to pack out to get a good tight fit then do same to fit the other end to the scope.
the cam then screws onto the filter threads which are left sticking out of the pipe.

hope this helps and makes sense if you need any more info get in touch

Nice solid job, I like :thumbup:
Pushing the limits of stuff and wild tangent thinking is the way to go
