55mm Objective – Explore Without Limits


Discover the groundbreaking, ultra compact TSN-55 PROMINAR, an exceptional spotting scope designed for those who seek adventure without compromising on optical quality.




Pure Fluorite Crystal Optics


The TSN-55 PROMINAR excels in its class thanks to Kowa’s exclusive use of PROMINAR pure fluorite crystal, which eliminates colour aberration to produce images of startling clarity and brightness. Whether you’re birdwatching or exploring vast landscapes, this scope ensures vivid, sharp, and lifelike visuals.




Dual Focus Precision


The spotting scope benefits from the PROMINAR dual-focus system that provides rapid and fine focusing adjustments, ensuring you can quickly adapt to changing scenes and capture intricate details with ease. This precision focusing system is a testament to Kowa’s advanced Japanese engineering and craftsmanship.


Superb ergonomics


The TSN-55 PROMINAR excels with superb ergonomics and user-friendly features, including a filter thread that accommodates the optional Kowa TP-58FT filter for enhanced protection, a versatile tripod mount for quick and secure attachment to any tripod or monopod and a smooth twist shunshade.

Eyepiece excellence – 17-40x optical zoom


The optical performance of the scope is improved by upgrading the eyepiece system on the scope body. The new incorporated eyepiece features high grade ED glass lens elements perfectly matched to enhance the performance of the 55mm pure fluorite crystal objective lens. The optical zoom delivered is an impressive and versatile 17-40x zoom. Also expands the field of view by up to a massive 52% compared to its predecessor, the TSN-550, allowing for a more immersive viewing experience.

Effortless Digiscoping


Forget your heavy, bulky photographic equipment. The TSN-55 PROMINAR transforms into a super compact powerful telephoto system with the addition of Kowa’s digiscoping adapters, compatible with both smartphones and DSLR cameras. This versatility system allows for seamless transition from viewing to photographing, capturing high-quality, long-range images with remarkable ease.


Accessory thread
