Kowa TSN-88A Set with TE-11WZ II Wide Zoom Eyepiece

The Kowa TSN-88A 88mm PROMINAR Angled Spotting Scope is Kowa's flagship model for good reason. The large 88mm objective lens is crafted from pure fluorite crystal (PFC) and has the unique ability to eliminate color blur and distortion almost entirely. Unlike traditional glass lenses, including high-quality optical glass, Kowa's PFC lenses are able to gather light with maximum efficiency and remove chromatic aberration that contributes to image deterioration. The TSN-88S captures crisp colors and fine details clearly to its highest magnification. Bright star clusters, subtle colors and shapes of birds' wings, details of the moon and planets, even slight changes of color in dark objects set against backlighting are clearly observed and sharply magnified by the 88mm PFC lens. 


Kowa's unique C3 and KR coatings further enhance the large fluorite lens and protect its natural properties. The C3 coating reflects 99% of visible light across the entire spectrum and, in turn, exhibits true-to-life color rendition as perceived by the naked eye. The KR coating then acts to protect against external residue that can become affixed to the lenses during normal use, such as fingerprints and oil. The result is an ultra-sharp, high-resolution image in every condition, including lowlight hours when birds and other animals are most active.

In addition to Kowa's high-performance optical lenses, you'll find the TSN-88A Angled Spotting Scope features carefully considered functions and a well-thought-out design. A magnesium alloy body provides the strength and feel of a traditional metal body, but at a much lighter weight. It's also 100% waterproof, sealed against dust, and nitrogen purged to prevent internal fog. The easy-to-use dual focus system allows you to switch between quick and fine focus producing a fast, accurate image display. And the twist-out sunshade can be extended past the lens to reduce glare and direct sunlight while also protecting the lens from water exposure and external moisture.

All Kowa TSN-880 Series spotting scopes come equipped with a rotating tripod mount, tripod mounting screw, and eyepiece locking mechanism as well. The eyepiece locking mechanism holds your eyepiece securely in place while the rotating tripod mount allows you to tilt the scope to different angles when attached to the tripod so you can find what works best for you. It can comfortably accommodate 90-degree viewing and includes a 1/4 and 3/8 mounting screw making the TSN-88A universally compatible with most tripods.

The TE-11WZ II 25-60x Wide Zoom Eyepiece 
The 25-60x zoom magnification allows users to easily adjust the range and field of view for objects that are on the move. The lower range of magnification (25x) provides a larger field of view, which is ideal for spotting birds and other wildlife. The higher range of magnification (60x) is perfect for identifying and observing subjects at a distance in detail once you've spotted them. 

Pure Crystal Fluorite Lens
Kowa's Pure Crystal Fluorite lenses are a clear step-up from even the highest quality optical glass. Its unique property of ultra-low dispersion eliminates almost all color blur present in optical glass and easily captures the smallest details and subtle color differences. It outperforms other premium optics in both back-lit and low-light conditions as well. Compared with other top competitors, even a novice could tell the difference in Kowa's Pure Crystal Fluorite.

Water & Fogproof
The TSN-88A housing is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging for clear viewing in any weather. 

Lightweight Magnesium Alloy Body 
The magnesium alloy body provides the strength and feel of a traditional metal body but at a much lighter weight. 

Anti-Glare Sunshade
The twist-out sunshade increases optical performance by reducing glare on the objective lens. 

Slide the hood away from the body to protect the lens from exposure to rain or to keep direct sunlight from entering the spotting scope. When the object you wish to view is difficult to find, the sight built into the lens hood can be used to find the object.

Quick Focus & Fine Adjustment
The focus knob of the spotting scope has a convenient two-step mechanism that allows for a smooth transition from quick focusing to fine adjustment so you can spot your subject easily and with all the detail Kowa's Crystal Fluorite lenses have to offer. 

When the object is substantially out of focus, use the quick focus knob, to bring the object into focus 3 times faster than when using the fine focus knob. The quick focus knob can focus from 5m to infinity in only two revolutions. The fine focus is convenient for fine focusing and slight adjustments. The minimum focus distance is 5 meters.


Secure Eyepiece Lock 
Kowa's mount system of the spotting scope allows the eyepiece to be easily attached and removed. The eyepiece locking mechanism securely mounts the eyepieces to the spotting scope and prevents the zoom eyepiece from accidentally falling out of the eyepiece mount from over-rotation that can occur when zooming.

Rotating Tripod Mount
The rotating tripod mount allows the spotting scope to be set at various angles while attached to the tripod so you'll always have the best view. The body of the spotting scope can be turned by loosening the lock screw counterclockwise and rotating the scope to the desired position. (The rotation range of the spotting scope is 225°.)

Universal Tripod Mounting Screw 
The tripod mount has a removable screw that allows the spotting scope to be attached to either 1/4 and 3/8 inch tripod heads. With the tripod screw inserted the mount can be used on 1/4 inch tripods. Removing the screw allows the scope to be attached to 3/8 inch tripods.
