Kowa Pure Fluorite Crystal Flagship Model with a Large 88mm Diameter Lens
In 2008 the Cornell Ornithology Lab conducted ScopeQuest, a detailed comparison test of 36 spotting scopes. Optics (ranging in price from $220.00 to $4500.00) were viewed side-by-side and rated according to sharpness, color fidelity, edge-to-edge focus, brightness, distortion, and general optical quality. The testing team also considered ease of handling/focus, and eye relief (scopes with longer eye relief are better for eyeglass wearers). Two of the finest spotting scopes AccurateShooter.com has used, the Zeiss Diascope 85 T FL, and the Swarovski APS 80 HD, performed very well as expected, and ended up near the top of the list. The TeleVue-85 APO, a very large refractor, received the highest ratings for image quality (both at 20X and 60X), but lost points for easy of use and general “feel”. The overall winner among the 36 spotting scopes tested was the Kowa TSN-883 Prominar, a new-generation spotter with a huge 88mm objective, dual focusing knobs, and spectacular flourite glass. The results of Cornell’s spotting scope test are found on the LivingBird.org website.

Swarovski ATX85 & Kowa 884

For birders willing to take the plunge for the very best optics at whatever cost, the top choices, in my view, are either the Kowa 883/884 or 773/774 or the Swarovski HD 80mm or 65mm scopes. Any of these top scopes will give you years of pure birding pleasure.

Kowa Pure Fluorite Crystal Flagship Model with a Large 88mm Diameter Lens

The flagship of Kowa spotting scopes with an extremely large 88mm objective lens. The enthusiasm behind Kowa’s 60 years of spotting scope development is manifested in this supreme model. Its optical performance and user friendliness leaves a satisfying impression on the user.

B&H assembled this Kowa TSN-884 25-60x88 PROMINAR PFC Spotting Scope Kit to give you a complete spotting scope rig for all your glassing needs. Normally sold separately, the kit consists of the PROMINAR PFC spotting scope body and their wide-angle eyepiece that produces a generous zoom range. All you need to get started is a reliable tripod or other support system.

Kowa TSN-884 88mm PROMINAR PFC Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing, Requires Eyepiece)

The Kowa straight-viewing TSN-884 88mm PROMINAR PFC Spotting Scope is a world-class caliber optic that redefines standards of color brilliance, sharpness, and brightness consistency. Kowa reinvented themselves again with the TSN-884, fastidiously examining each technological and ergonomic detail to produce the very best all-weather straight-viewing prismatic spotting scope.

The TSN-884 uses an element of pure fluorite crystal (PFC) glass in its construction, which greatly minimizes chromatic aberration. This ensures maximum efficiency in its light gathering, producing a clear visual range and sharp imagery that traditional glass lenses cannot attain at their highest magnifications and with the strongest of subject/background contrast changes. Fluorite is extremely expensive, but the subtle difference between the viewing from the PROMINAR-equipped TSN-884 and even the very best normal scopes would be apparent even to a novice. Kowa's use of their patented C3 prism multi-coating process increases image brightness significantly over their prior-generation models that featured flourite.

The 884's housing is made of a magnesium alloy that defines maximum durability and lightweight construction, resulting in a compact, ergonomic, and functional design for extreme nature and outdoor enthusiasts wanting only the very best. It sets a benchmark for the combination of large objective with small weight and mass.

As the straight-viewing model of Kowa's flagship line, this scope makes for an easy time in sighting your subjects and is best suited to solo observers or for whenever observing from an elevated position.
