any idea what brand camera the lens does fit? if you don't know, posting a photo of the mount would be helpful.

ebaY is one place to look for lens adapters.

lenses for cameras with mount to sensor distance greater than nikon, such as T-mount, work fine, so don't be discouraged, but you should know about the caveat.

caveat: because the distance from lens mount to sensor on Nikon cameras is longer than other brand cameras, there aren't many brandxxx to nikon adapters that allow for infinity focus. those that do typically have internal element which degrades performance similar to a teleconverter. those adapters without internal lens element can only focus closer.
