Our Optics Specialist Says ...

The 774 is an amazingly compact 77mm scope that raises the bar for optical performance & challenges it's larger compatriots for image brightness & detail.

 

Ask anyone in the birding fraternity ‘have you heard of Kowa?’ – the answer will always be yes, in fact many birders first scope would have been a Kowa. For the first time buyer the brand might not be as familiar as some but Kowa have been making quality optics since 1952.

With the introduction of the TSN 77 & 88 series Kowa upped their game & suddenly Kowa were standing shoulder to shoulder with the big names in optics. Large objectives & top quality optics provide stunning performance even under poor lighting conditions or high magnifications.
