Kowa TSN-883 Spotting Scope

Kowa-TSN-883-The TSN-883 is Kowa’s flagship spotting scope — featuring a large 88mm Diameter Flourite Crystal Lens that greatly reduces chromatic aberration.

Despite this large lens, it is still a compact and light scope — weighing 1,520 grams (53.6 ounces) and is 343 mm (13.5 inches) long. The magnesium alloy body decreases the weight of the scope while providing a rugged structure that can withstand the severest conditions. The inner focus system keeps the prism box light and compact while the large 88mm objective lens ensures overwhelming brightness. Furthermore, the dual focus mechanism allows focusing in two revolutions and fine pinpoint accuracy in one system and the eyepiece locking mechanism secures the eyepiece to the scope body and prevents it from getting lost or falling off suddenly. The addition of a brass insert to the tripod mount of the scope allows the scope to be secured to both 1/4- and 3/8-inch mount tripods. The housing is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent the lens from fogging.
