Pentax premium spotting scopes adhere to the American standard of 1.25" eyepiece thread diameter, facilitating the use of eyepieces from independent manufacturers. That also means, of course, that the wonderful Pentax eyepieces can be used in other telescopes and spotting scopes which accept 1.25" eyepieces.

All of the Pentax eyepieces exhibit an apparent field of view of greater than 50°, which is the generally agreed-upon maximum viewing field that an observer has in their non-peripheral vision. You'll feel like you are surrounded in space with a distortion-free portal to distant scenes at your disposal.

    Disappointing

    By Riverview

    from Kingston Beach, Tasmania, Australia

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Good at lower powers

    Cons

    • Blurred at high power

    Best Uses

    • Terrestrial Viewing

    Comments about Pentax SMC 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25"):

    I bought this zoom lens for a Pentax PF-80ED-A 80mm Spotting Scope, expecting the image to be sharp all the way up to 63x. While it is clear and sharp at low power it is certainly not at full power. I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I think my expectations were probably too high.
