Pentax 70515 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring premium optical components, a wide 70° field of a view, and generous 20mm eye relief for comfortable glassing, the SMC XW14 14mm Wide Angle Eyepiece is designed for use with Pentax 65mm, 80mm, and 100mm spotting scopes. This eyepiece yields 44x magnification with the PF-100ED, 37x with the PF-80EDA, 36x with the PF-80ED, and 28x with the PF-65EDA II and PF-65ED II. Extra-low dispersion lanthanum glass elements provide a balanced image with minimal aberrations, while fully multi-coated air-to-glass surfaces and partially coated laminated surfaces avoid reflection for optimal light transmission. A light-shielding diaphragm further reduces internal reflections for a bright, high-contrast image.

The eyepiece is constructed to Japanese Industrial Standard Class 4 for water resistance. It can't be used underwater, but will easily withstand light rain or dew. Its diameter is the American standard of 1.25", so it can be used in other optics that accept eyepieces, and it offers a 43mm adapter mounting thread under the removable eyecup.

    Pentax 70515 reviews

    SMC XW14 14mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Eyepiece Some coma in a faster telescope, but a paracorr fixes it up really nicely. In slower scopes these are extremely nice eyepieces. The coatings are second to none and the faintest details pop right out. Eye relief is a generous 20mm and so comfortable to observe through.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointing by comparison I couldn't find fault with this eyepiece, however I bought it for terrestial river viewing. I already had the Pentax XW20 eyepiece and was hoping to be able to see greater detail with the XW14 but that was not the case. To me it seems about the same as the XW20 in resolving fine detail. It will probably get very little use because of the wider field of view of the XW20.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from clear, wide Great eyepiece
    Date published: 2011-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get better than this! I bought this eyepiece for my Pentax 65ED II spotting scope. I chose this particular eyepiece after doing a great deal of research and reading numerous reviews. It certainly doesn't disappoint. The images are bright, sharp, color neutral and full of contrast. I am an avid nature watcher and Pentax has gone over and beyond, in my opinion, with this XW eyepiece.
    Date published: 2012-06-28
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it. Reviews for this eyepiece were great. But, image was dull, lacked contrast, and extremely difficult to keep centered in my eye, even with the 20mm eye relief. Purchased expensive Pentax 80mmED scope to go along with this eyepiece. Don't know if problem was with scope, eyepiece, or both. But, returned everything to B&H and purchased another brand,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Eyepiece I use this for astronomy with my telescope. The Pentax XW eyepieces are among the finest being made.
