Kowa's angled-viewing TSN-601 60mm Spotting Scope has been engineered to give you a powerful observational tool that is easy to use and resistant to most weather conditions, yet light enough that it won't weigh you down. Its performance begins with a large 60mm objective lens and fully multi-coated optics that work together to produce bright and clear, high-contrast images with accurate color rendition. The eyepiece holder is set at a 45° angle to the optical tube which places it at a comfortable angle whether you're standing, sitting, or laying prone while observing. To help compensate for the difficulty many experience when trying to locate a subject with angled scope bodies, Kowa integrated an aiming sight line on the optical tube, so you can get observing faster - especially when using high-magnification eyepieces.


The lightweight housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof in all but the most punishing conditions, and a piece of dust-protection glass inside the eyepiece holder ensures dust and dirt won't contaminate the optical tube when you're changing eyepieces. A retractable sunshade extends forward to prevent reflected glare from interfering with your vision, and also keeps rain and snow off the objective lens if the weather turns. This version of the TSN-601 is offered here without an eyepiece so you can decide which compatible Kowa fixed magnification or zoom eyepiece is right for your needs and pick them up separately.
