KOWA'S top-of-the-line 88mm scopes use pure fluorite crystal to produce images brighter than those attainable by glass. Coupled with a magnesium alloy body to reduce weight and a new 25-60x wide angle zoom eyepiece, many believe the Japanese built Kowas offer the best value in hi-end scopes of any manufacturer. Their big bright 88 and 77mm scopes come in straight or angled versions with a dual focus wheel for quick or fine focus, locking eyepiece and are nitrogen filled to be submersible waterproof. For further weight reduction consider Kowa’s 66 or 60mm scopes. Kowa offers a wide variety of digiscoping accessories that connect your camera solidly to their scopes.

Straight versus Angled View.
This is a very common question put to us so here's some advice. A straight view allows you to get onto your subject quicker with its direct-line-of-site view. For example, you can see the ducks way out on the river with your eyes, then lean over 2 inches to the eyepiece to get onto them quick and easy. Competitive birders prefer straights for this reason. With an angled scope one has to search more through the eyepiece with one's head down to get onto the subject as direct-line-of-site isn't possible. Angled scopes are preferable for various other uses 1) if you're looking up alot, say studying birds' nests in treetops, or astronomy 2) if you're with a group of people of various heights you don't have to move the tripod centre column up and down for various heights 3) angled scopes allow you to keep the tripod centre column slightly lower which is an advantage in windy conditions, giving less shakiness.
