The Kowa TSN-774 Prominar XD 77mm Spotting Scope with Straight Viewing is a scope of world-class caliber that redefines the standards of color brilliance, detail sharpness and edge-to-edge brightness. Logically tailored to the most demanding outdoor enthusiast, every technical and ergonomic detail that went into the development of the TSN-770 & 880 series spotting scopes has been examined, perfected or completely reinvented.
This version uses an element of XD (extra-low dispersion) glass in its construction which greatly minimizes chromatic aberration. This greatly enhances the clarity for crystal-clear images and high color accuracy. Use of Kowa's patented C3 multi-coated optics has made it possible to increase image brightness significantly over prior generation models. The advanced lens system of these scopes achieve minimal to zero chromatic aberration even at higher magnifications with consistent high image brightness.
The housing is made of magnesium alloy that is designed for maximum durability and lightweight body construction. The result is a compact, ergonomic, and functional design for the die-hard enthusiast that wants only the very best.
- C3 Coating
- C3 Coating is a highly reflective multi-coating of dielectrics. This allows for a much higher reflectivity than with coatings of silver or optically-enhanced aluminum, offering a reflectance of 99% or higher across the entire visible spectrum. Not only does this provide bright and sharp images, but accurate color reproduction is also achieved.
- Inner Focus System
- The innovative inner focus system decreases image movement when focusing on objects, even single handed. The focus system has the ability to focus from 16.4' (5 m) to infinity in two quick revolutions of the focus knob ensuring consistent viewing.
- Water & Fogproof
- The waterproof housing meets the rigorous standards of JIS Protection Class 7; they are also charged with dry nitrogen gas to prevent fogging.
- Choice of Eyepieces
- Multiple interchangeable eyepieces available including 20x-60x Zoom, 30x Wide, and 25x LER for total versatility in the field. Eyepiece locking mechanism prevents the eyepiece from falling out or getting lost. Converters allow users to utilize eyepieces from other Kowa spotting scope series.
- Quick-aiming sightline aids in object locating.
- Sliding sun shade shields unnecessary light and raindrops while providing protection for the front element (which has an 82mm filter thread).
- Adaptable to 35mm SLR cameras, digital cameras, and video cameras with optional accessories.
