The Kowa TSN-553 15-45x55 Prominar Fluorite Crystal (FC) Angled Spotting Scope is a brand new addition to the Kowa Prominar line of exceptional spotting scopes, delivering simply the best optical performance available today.
At the heart of the TSN-550 PROMINAR series spotting scope beats a fluorite crystal objective lens. This natural mineral has an outstanding feature of very low dispersion that cannot be found in optical glass. This characteristic enables Kowa to eliminate colour blur almost completely and dramatically increase resolution and contrast. Fluorite is considerably more difficult to handle than optical glass, it requires highly advanced processing technology.
All lenses, prisms, and dustproof glass are fully multicoated, ensuring sharp images and a clear visual range.
The first thing you’ll notice when you unbox your new Kowa TSN-553 is its exceptionally compact body. Measuring just a mere 270mm in length and weighing only 800g, your Prominar 553 spotter makes the perfect travel companion.
The housing of your Kowa spotter is completely waterproof and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent the lenses from fogging even in the dampest of environments.
A responsive twist 15-45x zoom eyepiece (Non-changeable) means you can enjoy clear, close up views of your subject.
Kowa has further progressed their well-established focus system, with a new dual focus system. The quick focus, with a large and easy to turn the knob, will focus from infinity to three meters in two revolutions. The fine focus, with smooth movement and pinpoint accuracy, is extremely useful at high magnifications and for digiscoping systems.
