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 great outfit for someone; a rare KOWA TS613 PROMINAR ANGLE BODIED 60mm SPOTTING SCOPE with E. GLASS (extra low dispersion); with FULLY MULTI COATED OPTICS; twinned with an excellent KOWA TSN 27xW EYEPIECE; and.. A green STAY-ON CASE with shoulder strap which I believe has been fitted since scope was new..
A n excellent still boxed VELBON MOUNTAIN CHASER TRIPOD wh ic h has leg locks to allow legs to splay out if working at low level, and a maximum normal working height of 1 54 cm approx. The TS613 also 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. All of these items are in good condition but do s h ow some signs of wear as you would expect, but most importantly the high resolution optics are clear and bright and the mechanical operations are all smooth and pleasant to use - apart from the sliding lens hood which is stiff it has a couple of light `dings`. Lens cap for eyepiece only.
Defects: some very slight wear & discolouration to the rubberised sections on the scope body almost certainly caused by being kept in the stay on case all its life! Possibly just a few internal dust specks and a hint of haze ; a couple of small touched in dents to the sliding lens hood which is stiff to get moving; scope serial number sticker is missing; 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....
