Product Description

Large and heavy astronomy binoculars give excellent views of starry skies, but meanwhile a stable platform is highly necessary for best use. While standard tripods are typically adequate for daytime use of huge binoculars to scan the horizon, they're less adequate for pointing big binoculars. Inherent height limitations and awkward adjustment controls of standard tripods can lead to shaky, neck-straining views of the heavens above.

For big astronomy binocular enthusiasts, Orion has invented the answer! The Orion Monster Parallelogram Binocular Mount and Tripod is designed for use with gigantic astronomy binocular and provides hours of comfortable viewing. Binoculars up to 15 pounds with up to 100mm diameter objective lenses can be supported with the Orion Monster Parallelogram Binocular Mount and Tripod. The binocs can be pointed anywhere, even at zenith!  The mount includes an anodized L-bracket for secure binocular attachment, and it conveniently accepts narrow dovetail plates so you can even use it with smaller telescopes.

Since balance is extremely important when big binoculars are being used, the Orion Monster Parallelogram Mount boasts six degrees of motion to make precise balancing delightfully easy. Two 11-pound counterweights are included to provide ample balancing control for even the heftiest astronomy binoculars.

This crowd-pleasing mount's parallelogram design can be used to raise and lower attached binoculars without disrupting the aim. This wonderful feature is a lifesaver when stargazing with family and friends of varying height, so each person can enjoy the view of the same object. With the Orion Monster Parallelogram Mount, you can position attached binoculars up to 6' and as low as 2'6". An optional pier extension is sold separately for additional height.

Includes anodized L-bracket for binocular attachment, convenient handle for easy slewing, and fully assembled tripod.
