    Shooters: Can anyone tell me something about a Kowa TS-602 25X with 60mm obj? How old would one of these be and are they any good?

    They still made them in 1993 and the discount price was $272.00 for the body--they're 60mm w/ straight eyepiece. Eyepieces available were 20-60x, 40x, 25x, 25x LER, and 20x WA. The regular 25x eyepiece was $60; the 25x LER eyepiece was $117. The replacement is TS 612 which is now available.

    Thank you Dan. Any comments on what one would be worth in fair shape?

    That I couldn't tell you, I'd only be guessing. But most anything Kowa makes is pretty good.

    They also put these Kowa TS-602s together on a cradle mount (angle mounted) the going price was $855 with 20x WA eyepiece, in 1993.
