Great Spotting Scope for Wildlife or at the Range

Rocket XIII, B&H Photo
6 January 2016
  • Excerpt: I have had this product for over a decade. Once I bought this spotting scope, I had no more desire to upgrade. I use mine with the Pentax SMC 8mm to 24mm zoom eyepiece, so the combination is 20X to 60X. I find the 60X setting to be incredible, especially for studying targets at 100 yards.

You won't be sorry if you buy this

  • Excerpt: I use this scope primarily for range shooting, and secondly for wildlife. I had this same scope for the last few years, and our home was burglarized and it was stolen. With insurance money, I could have bought any other one on the market, but didn't hesitate to buy this one again.

  • Excerpt: Paired with one of Pentax's XW fixed magnification eye pieces (e.g., XW14), there's no question that this scope offers one of the finest viewing experiences for the price. The sharpness, field of view, colour rendition, flatness of field, and enough eye relief to suit eyeglass users (at least with...

  • Excerpt: Bought it with a fix focus Pentax SMC XF 12mm eyepiece. All Pentax scopes use standard 1.25 eyepieces. It has a 82mm thread for filters. Basically a link between photo lenses and astronomy equipment. You can't go wrong with Pentax.

  • Excerpt: The thing that makes me happiest about this scope is the fact that I can used my high end Meade Superwide and Ultrawide eyepieces with it. I popped in an 8.8mm Meade Ultra Wide and was blown away with the brightness and clarity. The 15mm Superwide was even better...
