Kowa 88mm Prominar TSN-880mm Series Spotting Scopes feature large, oversized objectives - an astounding 88mm of glass. For birders and hunters alike, the Kowa 88mm TSN-880 Spotting-Scope redefines clarity with its large 88mm objective lenses crafted to Kowa's exacting standards for resolution and contrast. Add the C3 fully multi-coated lens coating system and you have performance that must be seen to be appreciated. Of particular note is the huge 88mm, pure fluorite crystal objective lens offered on the Kowa Prominar Spotting Scope. The result? Images so perfect in color and astounding for resolution and brightness that some reviewers have already made claims that this is the finest spotting scope they have ever looked through, period. One look and you will never go back to a smaller spottingscope. And why should you? The Kowa 88mm TSN-880 Spotting-Scope is as light as most 80mm spotting scopes, despite its huge objective, thanks to its rugged magnesium alloy body. It is also amazingly compact for a spotting scope 88 mm at only 13.5in (not including eyepiece) and like all premium Kowa spotting scopes, is fully waterproof and nitrogen purged. Side note: The eyepiece does not come with the scope; just the body is included. Needless to say, all Kowa Prominar TSN-880 Series Spottingscopes are designed for a lifetime of hard use.
