Pentax WP 20x60

I just pulled the trigger on a pair of Pentax 20x60’s and a pistol grip tripod from Amazon. I already have a pair of Opticron Oregon 15x70 on a tripod. I wanted a bit more magnification so wasn’t perturbed about losing a bit of FOV. Due to the higher magnification I also improved my tripod to the pistol grip. I have no clue as to how some folks can use binoculars of these sizes without some type of support. I guess I’ll put the 15x70’s up for sale before long. Looking forward to first light with the Pentax

Congrats on the purchase. Let us know how you like them. I have the same pair and can use for short spurts handholding during the day but I also use with a ball head pistol grip on a monopod for stargazing. Great for moon'gazing too! ;)

I've had the same (in fact my very first FLO purchase just over two years ago).... superb binoculars, with the lovely (for me) Pentax eyecups 👍

I found that I needed to mount them though, so bought the very same pistol grip and tripod, which worked well.

I only sold mine, because I found I was using my Nikon Monarch 5 8x56 pair more often, and I can hand hold these too.
