Kowa TSN-82SV Overview

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.

I have a Kowa TSN 821m and need an eye piece. What will fit this older model. would like a zoom, 15x45, or 20x60? Buzz Tuell
Asked by: Buzz
This is the zoom eyepiece we have on our website B&H # KOEP2060X66Q. It's for the Kowa TSN-82SV yours is an older model so you should check with Kowa that it's compatible with your scope.

question

Can 1.25 eyepieces be used with this?
Asked by: Bradley M.
I really can't say. I bought my TSN-82SV and the 20-60 zoom eyepiece at the same time from B&H. This is just what I need for looking at targets at distance, but I do have to say that I have had it out looking around the neighborhood a couple times. It is a very nice spotter and I like the zoom range.
