Kowa TSN-82SV overview

  • 1Description

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 lots of light, ensuring a bright field of view in nearly any practical nature viewing. It also 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 among 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.

Large >3" objective lens gathers plenty of light
Full multi-coatings upon all lenses and prisms
Main lens composed from environmentally friendly, lead-free "eco-glass"
Unique flat, wide Porro prism design
360° rotating base with click stops allows usage from all angles, eases comfort when viewing from elevated positions, and facilitates Wimberley Sidekick or other compact gimbal heads
Quick-aiming finder on the scope's right aids in object locating
Sliding sunshade protects objective from impact, rain, and stray light
Accepts 86mm filters
O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged
Extensively adaptable to SLR, point & shoot, and video cameras via optional dedicated adapters
Metal alloy and carbon fiber rubber-armored construction
Kowa's attractive signature green finish will not disturb wildlife
Equipped with both 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 tripod threads

    Kowa TSN-82SV reviews

    TSN-82SV 3.2"/82mm Spotting Scope (Requires Eyepiece) (Angled Viewing) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spotting scope! I am not a bird watcher but a target shooter and I am able to see my bullet holes out to 500 yards with no problems. I have looked around at other spotting scopes in this price range and this was the most clear and really brings out the color of things. As I said great scope!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spotting Scope! I use this spotting scope for looking at rifle targets both during practice sessions and at actual Matched to read the markers. For many years I suffered along with an inexpensive $150 scope of my own and had to use our Team Captains spotter for serious use and anything beyons 100 yards. He has the older version of this same spotting scope. I looked at a few other scopes, but knowing the quality and reliability of his (I have used it for years afterall!) I bought this TSV-82 with the 20-60 zoom eyepiece. It is great! The 82mm size is good in lower light (as compared to a 50 or 65mm spotter) if you need this capability. I have also used it a couple times looking at animals at distance and what a revelation it is here as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be an excellent scope This is my first spotting scope bought after extensive research based on reading specs and customer reviews. I ordered the scope with the TE-9Z 20-60x Zoom eyepiece and the Kowa Cordura Carrying Case. I'm able to read names of ships at sea, as far as in a couple of nautical miles from me. The full Moon occupies the entire visual field and the picture is very bright and clear. One very important note - a steady tripod and a smoothly moving tripod head (either geared or gimbal one) are required. Yet, a UV filter is needed for scope's front lens protection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased after researching spotting scopes extensively We shoot 500 to 1000 yards, and our cheap old spotting scope broke inside, so we read reviews, forums, customer product reviews for a few weeks. We chose this Kowa with the 25X long eye relief eyepiece based on all that, and we are just delighted. We could have spent 2-4 times as much for a high end brand, but we were looking for good benefit for the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TSN-82sv I upgraded from an older TSN-1, which is still a good scope. The 82sv is very clear, it is a great choice. I use mine for HP rifle competition and can see 22 cal. holes at 200yds, sometimes at 300yds.
    Date published: 2014-09-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Spotting Scope at a good price!!! I bought this spotting scope because it had excellent reviews and a good price. After receiving the scope I had a chance to compare it side by side with much higher price scopes. The TSN-82SV was almost as clear as the much higher price scopes but at a much lower price. It would be nice to have a fine adjustment focus knob like on the TSN-883
    Date published: 2015-08-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for 200 yards I purchased this scope on the recommendation of several colleagues who have 821s and I am very pleased. I had been using an inexpensive 20-60x60 and find the Kowa 82SV is much sharper and brighter at 200 yards.
    Date published: 2016-02-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from dollar for daollar, the best value Best spotting scope that beats higher price brands. It's clear and easy to focus and find your target. I returned a Leupold and purchased TSN-82 w/20x60x80mm and very happy with product and will give this item 5 stars.
