Kowa 663 Zooms

Postby Guest on Sun Feb 05, 2012 3:29 pm

Hi Joanie,

I'm looking at a second hand Kowa 663 with a 20-60x eyepiece. Is there any way to confirm that the eyepiece is the 9ZB? The pictures match what i see on the optics planet site as the 9ZB but just want to confirm its not the older zoom.

If it has a twist up eyecup, instead of a rubber folding eyecup, you're good to go. The older eyepieces was a 20-45x, anyway, if I remember, correctly. (sometimes a little fuzzy :) )
