I received my new Kowa TSN-99A scope a few days ago. I canceled the order on the tripod because it wasn’t really what I wanted and didn’t find something else that would arrive before I left for Washington.

The scope is fantastic although not having a tripod makes it difficult to sight. The view out my upstairs bedroom window. It I remember correct Timms Hill is about 3,200 feet away.

This is the viewfinder taken from my cellphone. It’s extremely difficult to handhold the phone as it’s depth of field is extremely narrow.

This cropped picture approximates the view although the field of view is bigger. This is at 25x.

It’s now at 70x. The height of the floors would be about 8 feet so that gives an indication of the magnifying power at 3,200 feet.

What is really lacking in the pictures is the sharpness. Viewing directly through the lens it is crystal clear with lots of contrast. These pictures were taken at twilight. This scope is a winner and when I get a tripod and camera attachment I should be able to take great pictures.
Any more pics since Spring? Amazing Kowa scope you got there :-)
Too busy being a farmer. Plus I need to learn how to use the camera.
