    Opinions on Kowa 881

    I have a good deal on a older Kowa 881 but i dont know if it is good. Is there a big diference between the 881 and the 883? Would the 881 and an newer eyepiece like the te-80xw be o good combo?

    Any customer review of new tsn-99?

    How do you like the TE-80 over the zoom? I couldn't find any reviews of it and i am really interested in some opinions as i have to decide between the two. Anybody else that has tried it, do you like it? I have looked through the old kowa 30x and the 25-60x and seem to prefere the fixed power...

    Best tripod for a big Kowa scope?

    Sorry for the offtopic, but did the VA-5 handle the 883? Is the mvh500 much smoother? These are my current 2 options but i don't like that the mvh is bulky while the VA-5 might not be good for the 883.
