SALE PENDING - Pentax 9x63 DCF Binoculars - Good for Astronomy - Reduced $

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax 9x63 DCF Binoculars - Good for Astronomy

Asking Price
300.00 USD REDUCED from $450

Item Location
Mint Hill, NC (United States)

Item Description
$300 - REDUCED from $450 One pair of Pentax 9x63 DCF binoculars for sale. The item is in like new condition, but the box is a little beat up. The lenses are clear, free of fungus or scratches however there are some minor coating imperfections - one shown in the pictures the others are a dot or two smaller than a ballpoint pen tip on the eyepieces near the outside edge.

List price per my contact in Pentax was over $1200 new - years ago. Similar Nikons with Porro Prisms rather than roof prisms are on Amazon for nearly $1700. The last pair sold on Ebay was around $475 and was in used not like new condition.

The box contains the original side zip flap over leather (?) case and all four caps. No strap is included. The binoculars are much lighter than I expected and are in immaculate shape. Typical for binoculars of this stature there is a front mounted tripod socket which can be adapted to Arca swiss or other tripod heads with the correct adapter which are available generically or via companies like PeakDesign.

Just to put in a good word for binoculars this big.... I have Pentax 20x60 binos for astronomical viewing, and, with a tripod, these are highly useful and fun. It's the closest thing to a telescope you can get, essentially--except much lighter, much more portable, much less expensive, much faster to set up, and useful for terrestrial purposes too. The 9x63 binos will make someone very pleased.

They work in daylight too! Lol. A bit larger and heavier but quite stunning optically.
