Orion Heavy-Duty Binocular Tripod and EZ Finder II Adapter
Using a pair of binoculars is a great way to see the sky whether you are a beginner or a seasoned observer; but take note, if you are using a binocular with 10x power magnification or higher, you will probably want to mount them on a tripod to get the most enjoyment and best performance. Big, powerful binoculars can be a challenge to hand-hold steadily for long periods of time. Additionally, once you get above about 15x power it can be surprisingly difficult to find objects with binoculars, since their high power magnification makes it harder to precisely aim while holding the binoculars in your hands. Is there an easier way to enjoy your astronomical pursuits with binoculars? Yes! The Orion Heavy-Duty Binocular Tripod & EZ Finder II Adapter will keep your big binoculars stably attached to a field tripod while also enabling you to point them accurately anywhere in the sky.
- Use a red-dot EZ Finder II Reflex Sight for easy location of target objects with attached binoculars
- Securely attach your binoculars to a field tripod or specialized parallelogram binocular mount with this rugged adapter
- Increase your observing efficiency - view objects quickly instead of searching for them
- Non-corroding stainless steel tripod adapter will last a lifetime
- Includes Orion EZ Finder II Reflex Sight for EZ aiming
Aim your astronomical binoculars precisely and keep them stably mounted with the Orion Heavy-Duty Binocular Tripod & EZ Finder II Adapter! This rock-solid, stainless steel tripod adapter for binoculars features our popular EZ Finder II red-dot reflex sight, making it “EZ” to accurately aim your binoculars anywhere in the sky.
The included Orion EZ Finder II is a non-magnifying sighting device that will help you aim binoculars attached to the Orion Heavy-Duty Binocular Tripod Adapter. After a simple alignment procedure, EZ Finder II superimposes a tiny, LED powered red dot onto a viewing window to indicate where the binocular is pointing. Simply peer through the EZ Finder II and gently move the tripod-mounted binocular until the object or area of sky you want to explore is under the red dot. Your target will be conveniently centered in your binoculars’ field of view!
Especially useful with high power binoculars, this sturdy stainless steel tripod adapter and reflex sight bundle makes pointing attached binoculars simple so you can spend more time viewing celestial objects of interest rather than wasting time searching for them.
Ideal for attaching any binocular equipped with a 1/4”-20 threaded acceptor to a field tripod or parallelogram style binocular mount (such as the Orion Paragon HD-F2 and XHD field tripods and Paragon-Plus Binocular Mount, sold separately). The heavy-duty adapter features a quick-release attachment so binoculars can be swiftly disconnected for intermittent handheld use, if desired, and it makes set-up and tear-down a breeze.
