Kowa enjoys a spectacular reputation of enduring quality internationally, where there are large numbers of nature enthusiasts.
Kowa's line of 60mm spotting scopes, including their TSN-602 60mm Spotting Scope, represents the best of ultra-compact scopes with interchangeable eyepieces. They offer fully multi-coated lenses and nitrogen purging for waterproofed protection. These are finely crafted, exquisite pieces that'll astound you with their quality.
It is entirely a matter of personal preference best determined by experience, but many feel that straight scopes offer a more intuitive way to locate your subject quickly. They're usually a bit lighter than their angled counterparts, and almost always less expensive as well.
