I had this spotting scope many years ago and later regretted letting it go, so I repurchased it recently, and was not disappointed to see it was as good as I remembered. I already had a nice 8-24mm zoom lens for it and it makes a great compact, travel scope.
I was looking for a very portable scope for birding and I am glad I selected the 65EDA II. It's extremely light and the optics are great. I have used it with both a Televue 32mm plossl and a 13mm Nagler for birding and the views have been very pleasing.
I can't think of anything negative to say about this scope and I am pretty fussy when it comes to optics. Well balanced, light, smooth focusing, very sharp optics, and the best part is I can use any 1 1/4 astronomical eyepiece many of which are far superior to the zooms found on spotting scopes.
but 8-24mm zoom eyepiece ds not fit in case
I looked at many reviews trying to decide what spotting scope would best fit my needs and that would also possibly work for astronomy purposes hence the 1.25 eyepiece interchangeability. I obtained a Vixen NLV 8-24mm zoom and WOW, this scope surprised me with the clarity and brightness.
Still getting to know the scope, but very impressed so far. It's lightweight, very easy to focus, and will be easy to take along for hiking.
I am a very advanced astronomer and appreciate fine optics. I needed a spotting scope for non astronomy purposes and already had a full set of the excellent Pentax eyepieces (5-40mm) including their 8-24mm zoom that is used with my telescopes.
I am a professional photographer and also a astrophotographer so have extensive knowledge of optics.I was look for a spotting scope that had good optics, sealed against water, tough AND light. I use this for wildlife and also target shooting.
Pentax PF-65EDA II Spotting Scope I have been shopping for a spotting scope for over a year and I have not been satisfied with any of the sporting optics. They all have milky or grainy images. In researching the outdoor forums, many people sung the praises of this spotting scope from Pentax.
I use it for viewing wildlife mainly. I bought this scope based on the rave reviews I read about it's sharpness, resolution and optical clarity. I am very disappointed in all of the above qualities. It does not meet my expectations.
