Kowa has designed a “Prominar Apochromat” model with fluorite crystal objectives for those seeking highest-possible optical performance. These fluorite lenses eliminate false color (chromatic aberration), which improves resolution and contrast.
The Highlander’s strong yet lightweight die-cast aluminum housing is extremely durable, with a rigid structure that can endure hard usage. Weight is just 13.6 pounds with the standard 32x eyepieces. The housing is waterproof and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging. Individual-focus eyepieces are set at a 45 degree angle, allowing for easy, long term observation of both terrestrial and astronomical targets. Also included are built-in retractable dewshields that help protect against stray light and moisture.
Options include a selection of tripods/mounts, a high-quality aluminum carrying case, as well as wide-angle 21x and high-power 50x Kowa eyepiece pairs.
