Pentax PF-65ED-A 65mm Spotting Scope Angled 70961 Body Only Product Info

Pentax PF-65ED-A Angled Spotting Scope (body only) incorporate porro-prism optics and a 65mm objective lens with imageExtra-low Dispersion optical elements to deliver sharp, high-contrast images with minimal chromatic aberration. With a 45-degree slanted lens barrel, the 65 mm Pentax PF-65 ED-A Spottingscope offers hours of comfortable, fatigue-free viewing.

These new Pentax Spotting Scopes also feature a compact, lightweight body with nitrogen-filled waterproof construction (JIS Class 6), a collet-type eyepiece receptacle for an American-standard 31.7mm (1.25 inch) sleeve, a protective rubber housing, and accessible reach by either hand. When the Pentax PF65EDA Spotting Scope is mounted on a tripod, the lens barrel can be twisted 90 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise from the default position at top or 180 degrees from side to side along with easy-to-locate pointers at top and 45-degree angles, to assure the best viewing position. The extendible rubber lens hood comes with a sight line to facilitate target-line adjustment.

To optimize the performance of these new Pentax PF-65mm ED Angled Body Spotting Scopes, Pentax has developed three optional compact, high-performance XF-series eyepieces, all featuring a bright, high-contrast image, an American-standard 31.7mm sleeve and focal lengths ideal for outdoor viewing and bird watching. The smc Pentax XF8.5 and  Pentax XF12 are standard unifocal eyepieces, offering a focal length of 8.5mm and 12mm, and a magnification of 46 and 32.5 times, respectively, with a 60 degree apparent field of view and a long 18mm eye relief. The eyepieces feature an extendable eyepiece ring with four click-stop positions. The smc Pentax XF Zoom Eyepiece 6.5mm-19.5mm features a focal-length range of 6.5mm to 19.5mm for a magnification of 20 to 60 times, with an apparent field of view of 42 to 60 degrees and an eye relief of 11mm to 15mm.

In addition, four Pentax XW-Series Telescope Eyepieces XW7, XW10, XW14 and XW20 (optional) are also usable on these spotting scopes.

For added convenience, the Spotting Scopes are compatible with the optional PF-CA35 camera adapter, for conversion into high-quality super-telephoto lenses with a focal length of 780mm and a fixed aperture of F12 in combination with a Pentax 35mm-format SLR camera.
