Maybe 6 hours on it. Used on one hunting trip, killed my bull opening morning. This is like new! Love the glass and focus system of this scope but purchased the straight body version since I will not use it much and it’s easier for me to use a straight scope (what I am use to). These angled body scopes are the preferred and if I was using for target and hunting it would be the best, but this is just a hunting item for me that I will only use every couple of years for shot periods so don‘t need the ergonomics of the angled body to uses for hours spotting or rotating for bench shooting.

Kowa TSN-883 88mm Prominar Pure Fluorite Spotting Scope - Angled Body​

Kowa 88mm Prominar Spotting Scopes feature large, oversized objectives - an astounding 88mm of glass. For birders and hunters alike, the Kowa 88mm TSN-880 Spotting-Scope redefines clarity with its large 88mm objective lenses crafted to Kowa's exacting standards for resolution and contrast. Add the C3 fully multi-coated lens coating system on this spotting scope by Kowa Optics and you have performance that must be seen to be appreciated. Of particular note is the huge 88mm, pure fluorite crystal objective lens offered on the Kowa Prominar Waterproof Spotting Scope. The result? Images so perfect in color and astounding for resolution and brightness that some reviewers have already made claims that this is the finest spotting scope they have ever looked through, period. One look and you will never go back to a smaller spotting scope. And why should you? The Kowa Prominar 88mm TSN-880 Scope is as light as most 80mm spotting scopes, despite its huge objective, thanks to its rugged magnesium alloy body. It is also amazingly compact for a spotting scope 88 mm at only 13.5in (not including eyepiece) and like all premium Kowa spotting scopes, is fully waterproof and nitrogen purged. Needless to say, all Kowa Prominar TSN-880 Series Spotting Scopes are designed for a lifetime of hard use.

Was this scope purchased from a US Kowa dealer? If so how long ago and did you register the warranty?

Bump for a great deal and spectacular scope. I spent ALOT of time behind one during my goat hunt this year and was amazed at the quality of the image in this spotter. Easily rivals or surpasses the euro big 3 in terms of quality.

Free endorsement. This is amazing glass. It routinely scores higher marks than Swaro's comparable spotters in the birdwatching community (an exceedingly discriminating bunch). I've spent time behind most alpha spotters and prefer mine (this model) to all of them.
