The Pentax 80 ED Telescope offers the unrivalled combination of high optical performance & the ability to give maximum flexibility of magnification by adopting the 31.7mm push fitting usually found on astronomical telescopes. For users looking for a portable spotting scope offering high magnifications, using it in combination with the Baader Hyperion eyepieces, easily allows you to achieve magnifications up to 100x with very little loss in optical quality. If your criteria is for a scope that offers the ability to double up as both high quality field scope and as a Richfield ED refractor then the Pentax 80 ED would make for a very good choice.
Smaller, lighter and sharper, the new Opticron HR ED 80 & 66mm fieldscopes offer a host of improvements over preceding models and have been redesigned without compromise in order to deliver truly exceptional optical performance combined with sublime handling and complete reliability.Aimed squarely at the serious fieldscope user, the models are built to withstand extremes in temperature, to operate unaffected by rain, cold or humidity. Purchase either a Straight or Angled body together with an SDL eyepiece before the end of February and we will give you an Opticron 42830 Birdwatcher’s Pro Tripod free of charge.
