I came across this cross section of the Pentax 80mm spotting scope, researching that, and it includes the zoom as well.

I guess they remove the glass window in the front for astronomy?

That's a very nice cut, revealing quite a lot of the details.

 

Thanks,

The glass window is a water/dust seal on the scope.  It is not part of the eyepiece.
