Kowa enjoys a spectacular reputation of enduring quality internationally, where there are large numbers of nature enthusiasts.

Kowa's line of 60mm spotting scopes represent the best ultra-compact performance scopes with interchangeable eyepieces.  Both models offer fully multicoated lenses and nitrogen purging for waterproofed protection.  These are finely crafted, exquisite pieces that will astound you with their quality.

It is entirely a matter of personal preference best determined by experience, but many feel that angled scopes offer a more comfortable position for extended viewing periods.  They're usually a bit easier to share amongst multiple users of varying heights as well.

The TSN-603 uses an element of ED (extra-low dispersion) glass in its construction, which greatly minimizes chromatic aberration.  Most spotting scopes are essentially refractor telescopes built for harsh abuse, with permanently included prisms to render the terrestrial world upright and laterally correct.  For all their contrast and resolution, refractor telescopes did fall out of favor with astronomers for their false coloring at the image periphery(chromatic aberration).

This problem becomes more prevalent the larger and longer the refractor is and is easily seen in astronomy-but much harder to detect in birding, for example.  But if you view a bird in front of a bright sky background with a normal scope, you'll see some fringing on the edge of the subject where it meets the sky in your view. &3160;This may appear as a blue or purple hazy line.  Glass with ED elements greatly reduce this effect.
