Product description

More about the series TSN 550...

The fluorite crystal success story continues!
Kowa presents a new compact spotting scope with a 55mm fluorite crystal objective lens.

With the introduction of the TSN-880 PROMINAR spotting scope series, Kowa created a new standard of quality. A spotting scope with a fluorite crystal objective lens whose optical power is matched by no other spotting scope. Today, TSN-880 PROMINAR spotting scopes are still market leaders.

Following in the footsteps of these legendary lenses, the new TSN-550 PROMINAR spotting scope series has taken up the same leading position amongst compact spotting scopes. These new, exceptionally compact spotting scopes inherit the key features of the TSN-880 series, including their unrivalled optical performance, and create a new reference class in this market.

Kowa dreamed of creating an ultra-portable spotting scope with the best possible optical performance. With the TSN-550 PROMINAR spotting scope series, this vision has become a reality.
