Kowa TSN-CV88A Twist-up eyepiece protection cap
Twist-up eyepiece cap with protection glass for Kowa TSN-99/88/880/770/66/55 spotting scope ranges. Compatible with TE-11WZ / TE-80XW eyepieces as well as discontinued models TE-10Z (20-60x zoom eyepiece) and TE-17W (30x wide-angle eyepiece). The TSN-CV88A features a twist up design allowing the user to set eye-relief as required. At the opposite end of the spotting scope lies another area of vulnerability. The eyepiece, like the objective lens, is exposed to the full fury of mother nature. Including harsh weather and other degrading environmental conditions. The delicate coatings are at risk of being scratched by the elements as well as the user themselves for example spectacle wearers, persistent handling and insufficient storage or transportation. As with the objective lens, the eyepiece is pivotal for peak performance of your spotting scope, it is also an expensive part to replace. The Kowa TSN-CV88A is the perfect addition to a Kowa scope and part of the Kowa System protective accessory range. The TSN-CV88A imply screws on to the eyepiece and replaces the standard removable eye-relief cap. Ergonomic and comfortable viewing rubber encases a layer of see-through protection glass, forming a see-through protective barrier between the eyepiece optics and external elements. The CV-88A is fully compatible with all Kowa System accessories and digiscoping adapters.
