Eyepeice interchange Kowa Spotting Scopes


Does anyone know if I can use a zoom eyepiece from a Kowa TS-614 on my TSN 82sv? I have an 82sv and agreed to purchase a TS-614 that has the zoom eyepiece. I have different uses in mind, but would be great to know in advance.

Thanks for the advice!

yes, all small bayonet Kowa spotters (basically everything called TSN except 5xx, 77x and 88x series) share the same EPs.

The magnification will be a bit higher than stated as it has a slightly longer focal length of 450mm than the others (420mm).

Some Opticron EPs work in older Kowa TSN 1/2/3/4 bodies but not in newer models.
