Pentax PF-80ED Angled Spotting Scope Body Only
Pentax's PF-80ED-A is the company's first spotting scope to feature an angled eyepiece. At 45 degrees it is the optimal angle for comfortable viewing in most situations.
The objective lens of the PF-80ED-A features a large effective aperture of 80mm resulting in a bright image field for easy spotting of your subject and precise focusing. The objective lens incorporates ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements providing a sharp, high-resolution image for minimal chromatic aberration. The maneuverable straight-line barrel simplifies spotting and following your subject from afar in an expeditious manner. The PF-80ED-A is constructed from a heavy-duty magnesium alloy in order to reduce weight and keep secure the inner mechanisms, while a rubber protective shell further promotes durability and resistance to shock.
The PF-80ED-A incorporates a dust-shielding glass element in its eyepiece receptacle to assure JIS Class 6 waterproof construction, leaving you free to concentrate on spotting rather than worrying about the adverse effects of poor weather copnditions. The PF-80ED-A’s nitrogen gas-filled body prevents internal fogging caused by sudden temperature changes, providing a clear vision under any conditions.
A Choice of Various Eyepieces to Meet Specific Applications:
There are four wide-angle XW-series eyepieces avaialble from Pentax as well as three cost-efficient XF-series eyepieces and one versatile zoom eyepiece for use with the PF-80ED-A. You can select the one which most suits your requirements. All eyepieces feature long eye relief to assure comfortable viewing for those with spectacles.
