Default Kowa TSN2/3

Can anyone give me any idea re the specifications of the 2 scopes mentioned in the subject line.

Are they up to it re digiscoping. The TSN 2 comes with a 20 x wide
eyepiece and the 3 comes with a 20 x 60. The 3 has a flourite Lenns I am not sure if its Fluorite or ED glass for the 2.

My camera is the Coolpix 995.

Also has anyone any idea of the 2nd hand prices here in the UK.

Geordie,

As the TSN3 has flourite glass and the 2 doesn't I'd go for that. You may find the 20-60 zoom more flexible as well. I use a fixed 32x on my Leica but I know a number of Digiscopers who use zoom eyepieces. You can certainly get Digiscoping adaptors from EagleEye for your CP995 to 20-60 combination (it's their L6 28mm).

Here's a link to eBay for a TSN3 down your way - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...&category=3636

Regards,
Graham.

Thanks Graham just what I wanted to hear as the guy with the TSN2 didn't know the type of glass. In negotiations with the owner of the TSN3 as I type. Thanks once again.
