XW 14 or XW 20 Eyepiece? (1 Viewer)


Greetings -

Curious if anyone has had any experience with the new Pentax eyepieces...I have the PF-80EDA scope/20-60x zoom, and want to buy a fixed length eyepiece. Just for viewing, not digiscoping. The XW 14 translates to a 37x on my scope and the XW 20 translates to a 26x. Both have a 70 degree FOV, 20mm eye relief.

Thanks -

26x is a very useful strength if the field of view is wide. 37x would be useful - again if wide - for sea watching and such like, I should think.
