It is actually a 780mm f/12.5 lens. You could also couple the same PF-CA35 adapter ($400) to a Pentax PF-100ED spotting scope ($1600) to get a whopping 12.5/1250mm telephoto lens, a focal length equivalent to 1844mm in 35mm terms, guaranteed to be almost unusable, except to shoot the moon

Cheers!

Thats the thing with spotting scopes. Nice reach but the scope to K adapter kills the aperture. hmm...any good scopes out there that aren't $1000+ ? =p
