Product Highlights
  • Waterproof & Fogproof
  • Angled Viewing

Kowa enjoys a spectacular reputation of enduring quality internationally, where there are large numbers of nature enthusiasts.  Their TSN-82SV Spotting Scope is the modern iteration of Kowa's TSN-821M scope, which endured for well over a decade as their premium design.  The 82SV's a great choice if you want the very best in optics from a respected Japanese company without forking over an arm and a leg to get it.

The TSN-82SV was created using advanced optical technology and the best of materials known.  Its 82mm objective lens gathers gobs of light, ensuring a bright field of view in nearly any practical nature viewing.  It makes for a great casual-use astronomical scope.

The 82SV is offered exclusively as an angled viewing design.  While it isn't a matter entirely settled until you experience the differences for yourself, it is nearly a universal belief that the angled scopes offer a more comfortable time of longer glassing, and are unequivocally easier to share amongst a group of observers.  You can also get away with a shorter tripod using the angled scope, perhaps shaving precious ounces off your pack weight.  Angled scopes do require a bit more experience at locating the subject; if you're tall and equipped with a tall tripod and primarily viewing alone, a straight viewing scope is often preferred.
