Highly unlikely. One often gets an image when using infinity corrected objectives in a fixed tube microscope but the image quality is very poor.

I one were to install the correct telon lens at the correct location in the fixed tube system, it is possible that it could be converted but only to use the objectives matched to the specific telon lens.
