Pen-F, Shoot w/out lens setting ?

Hi,
Is there a hidden menu setting to enable the Pen-F to shoot without a lens attached ?
I'm asking this as I'm going to use my Pen-F attached to my spotting scope and wondered what or how to set it up for this as I'm using the scopes' own zoom eyepiece to attach the camera body to via a T2 adapter.

It works fine with a totally manual lens so I don't think it should be a problem.

I have not got a Pen F but if that camera works the same as my Olympus gear of EM-10 and EM-1 (and I can't imagine it would be any different) then it works the same as for a totally manual lens as Steve indicated. No need for enabling any shooting without a lens attached setting.

To clarify, all I had to do was attach the lens, make sure the camera was on aperture priority, set the lens aperture and fire away (after remembering to focus!). No menu settings required.
