The KOWA brand was one of the first Japanese sourced prismatic `spotting scopes` brands, first appearing I think in the 1950`s. The brand has since then been at the forefront of optical design producing both binoculars and scopes though they are probably better known for their spotting scopes especially in the U. Very popular with birders, they have consistently been strong sellers due to fine optical ability and good build quality.
The latest top KOWA scopes & eyepieces are VERY expensive today! Here is a g ood outfit for someone; a KOWA TS61 1 ANGLE BODIED 60mm SPOTTING SCOPE with FULLY MULTI COATED OPTICS; twinned with an excellent KOWA TSN 20- 4 0x ZOOM EYEPIECE; and.. A green STAY-ON CASE with shoulder strap which I believe has been fitted since scope was new.. A n excellent VELBON CX 640 TRIPOD & case with shoulder strap, it has a quick release plate, and a maximum normal working height of 1 6 0 cm approx.
The TS611 features a sliding lens hood, a rubberised finish to the hood and around the front of the scope, plus the eyepiece has a rubber fold down eyecup. Only the objective lens cap is present.
Both scope and tripod appear to be virtually unmarked and obviously very little used. T he scopes high resolution optics are clear and bright and the mechanical operations are all smooth and pleasant to use. Defects: a few internal dust specks and annoyingly some small ` spots ` on the prisms which appear to have no effect on the view out ; the stay on case has some age related wear. I take great care examining, using and describing the binoculars and scopes i sell, and always get a second opinion. Also, please remember, everyone`s eyes are different....SCOPE SPECIFICATION: KOWA TS 61 1 60 mm angle bodied SPOTTING SCOPE with 20 - 4 0 x KOWA ZOOM eyepiece; plus STAY-ON CASE; plus VELBON CX 640 TRIPOD; fully multi coated; serial no. 103618 ; made in japan; scope weight with case 1. 12 kilo grams; tripod 1.86 kilograms.
