  • Kowa TSN-884 88mm PROMINAR PFC Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing, Requires Eyepiece)

    The Kowa straight-viewing TSN-884 88mm PROMINAR PFC Spotting Scope is a world-class caliber optic that redefines standards of color brilliance, sharpness, and brightness consistency. Kowa reinvented themselves again with the TSN-884, fastidiously examining each technological and ergonomic detail to produce the very best all-weather straight-viewing prismatic spotting scope.

    The TSN-884 uses an element of pure fluorite crystal (PFC) glass in its construction, which greatly minimizes chromatic aberration. This ensures maximum efficiency in its light gathering, producing a clear visual range and sharp imagery that traditional glass lenses cannot attain at their highest magnifications and with the strongest of subject/background contrast changes. Fluorite is extremely expensive, but the subtle difference between the viewing from the PROMINAR-equipped TSN-884 and even the very best normal scopes would be apparent even to a novice. Kowa's use of their patented C3 prism multi-coating process increases image brightness significantly over their prior-generation models that featured flourite.

    The 884's housing is made of a magnesium alloy that defines maximum durability and lightweight construction, resulting in a compact, ergonomic, and functional design for extreme nature and outdoor enthusiasts wanting only the very best. It sets a benchmark for the combination of large objective with small weight and mass.

    As the straight-viewing model of Kowa's flagship line, this scope makes for an easy time in sighting your subjects and is best suited to solo observers or for whenever observing from an elevated position.
