This was my first scope, which I used extensively to conduct raptor migration counts. When I purchased this scope in 2009, I wasn't quite ready to pony up for a Kowa or Tele Vue scope--instead, I was just hoping I could find something I'd be happy with until I could afford what I wanted. Instead, I discovered that with a Pentax 14 mm XW series eyepiece, the Pentax competes more than favorably with many top grade scopes at less than half the price. Even after upgrading to a Kowa TSN-883 in 2012, I remain amazed by the Pentax's bright, sharp image & generous FOV. If you can live without a zoom, it remains the best value in full-size scopes. To put things in perspective, I had to literally spend nearly $3000 US to get a scope that actually outclassed the Pentax PF-80ED. Yes, the Pentax is that good!

When my workplace was looking to fit out the field vehicles with some new scopes, I recommended we get a couple of these. We are *very* satisfied with how these have worked out. I recommend that you buy the scope body *without* the SMC zoom eyepiece, which has poor eye relief and is optically mediocre compared to Pentax's superb XW line. The XW line also has one of the largest FOVs of any weatherproof eyepiece on the market. In fact, it would be fair to say that these eyepieces are probably a great deal better than the scope itself (which is a solid performer in its own right!), and are indeed used by some astronomical observatories on their large telescopes.

This is an absolutely excellent quality scope. Image is sharp to the edge. Focus very good for just one focus knob. Quality build and is certainly a "Best Buy". I have never noticed any fringing,even in difficult situations. You don't have to spend 2500+ dollars to get a great image. Pentax is good. I can lay on the porch with the Big Dogs now.

I use this Pentax PF-80ED Spotting Scope Straight with Pentax 3.5 eyepiece for Moon, and other astronomical observation like M31 and etc.
Magnification = focal length 500 / 3.5 = 142.8. Really and truly! The views is excellent. For terrestrial viewing this scope is also good.

And, by the way, with the TeleVue Nagler Zoom 2mm to 4mm Eyepiece ENZ-0204 this scope works pretty good for the same purposes.

Being very familiar with Pentax Telescopes and eyepieces I decided to give the Field scope a try. My intended use was competition rifle shooting and i needed this scope for viewing targets at 1000 yards. The scopes quality of construction is excellent it is covered in the typical rubberized material. The focuses is very precise and operates smoothly. When testing a focuser you want to see and image snap into focus then snap out. This field scope does exactly that. The internal baffling works well and the images are bright and crisp. The detail in objects this scope provides makes it superior to many others.
I am confident when I recommend this as a Birding or Shooting scope. Where it doesn't do well is Planetary viewing there will be color fringing errors on the planet edges.
