Explore Scientific U-mount with Tripod for Large Binoculars - 01-14300

Introducing the Explore Scientific U-mount with Tripod, your perfect companion for large binocular observations.

Specifically crafted for the Explore Scientific BT series and compatible with binoculars featuring 70-120mm lenses and a 1/4 inch photo thread underneath.

Say goodbye to shaky views – this mount and tripod combo provides stability that feels seamlessly integrated.

Whether you're stargazing or exploring landscapes, the U-Mount guarantees solid support with smooth, precise movements.

Portability Meets Sturdiness, for large binoculars, a transportable yet robust mount is essential. Ordinary tripods won't cut it.

The Explore Scientific U-mount boasts fine-grained adjustability with customizable friction in both axes, even under a full payload.

You control stability or gentle tracking with ease. Large adjustment screws work effortlessly, even with gloves.

This sturdy design minimizes vibrations, ensuring crisp, detailed views at high magnification. When it's time to go, the U-mount and tripod separate for easy transport.

Easy Binocular Assembly, thanks to the quick-change adapter plate included, mounting and dismounting binoculars takes seconds, making it perfect for outdoor adventures.

The binoculars attach securely using two 1/4 inch threaded bolts.

Variable positioning accommodates various binoculars, and the double screw connection ensures a rock-solid fit.

The adapter plate itself securely attaches to the U-mount with two large clamping screws, designed for easy operation – even with gloves.

Rock-Solid Tripod, no matter the terrain, our Explore Scientific tripod offers unwavering stability. Constructed from solid aluminum and stainless steel, it quells vibrations effectively.

The 50mm diameter stainless steel tripod legs paired with the aluminum tripod head plate strike the perfect balance between stability and transportability, weighing just 5.8kg.

When the tripod legs are folded, it measures a mere 80cm in length.

The included accessory tray braces the legs outward, further enhancing stability.

Extendable tripod legs let you tailor the binocular's working height, ranging from approximately 100 to 140cm.
