Binocular Mount

 

Aperture Telescopes present you with the Binocular Mount. The sturdiest and the smoothest binocular mount you’ll ever find for this price.

Most newcomers in Sky Observation or Astronomy Clubs in schools want to begin with a telescope and often overlook the mighty binoculars. Compared to a telescope, binoculars have many advantages. The first and the biggest is that of a wide field of view making celestial objects easier to find. They may give lower magnification, but they’re lighter, much easier to take outside, use, and put away, and less expensive. Binoculars let you use both eyes, providing better, more natural 3D views. Moreover, in binoculars everything is right-side up and presented correctly, not upside down or mirror-reversed. Seasoned astronomers will tell you to learn the sky with binoculars and then look for a good telescope. Experienced observers keep them close at hand in spite of owning large telescopes. Binocular MountThe instrument plays only half the part, the other half is the mount. You can buy the best and most expensive telescope and it will be almost useless without a solid mount and smooth movements. The importance of the mount can’t be overstated. A poorly designed or built mount can make astronomy frustrating.

The Binocular Mount handles upto 100mm binoculars easily, a 8 kg counterweight is included in price. They say a 7x50 can be handheld. We say mounting a 7x50 binocular on our mount will increase the resolution, and you will be able to discern fainter objects. For example, Io, the satellite of Jupiter can be seen much clearly with a small but mounted binocular but not with a handheld one.

The Binocular mount’s balanced and smooth motion provide for relaxing viewing for hours on end with binoculars as large as 100mm in aperture. It eliminates arm strain and shakiness, and allows you to aim your binocular high overhead, even to the zenith, while you stand or sit comfortably underneath.

Binocular MountThe Binocular Mount has 4 different movements so that the binocular moves around you. You do not contort your body to see through the eyepiece. Comfortable viewing position even when watching at the zenith prolongs your viewing pleasure and is very useful when showing to a large number of observers.

All types of Binoculars can be fitted on the Binocular Mount, ‘L’ brackets are supplied and are included in the price.

The height of the binocular eyepiece can be adjusted from 3.5 feet to 7.5 feet, keeping the same object in the field of view. Ideal when showing sky objects to large group of people. A sturdy wooden surveyor’s tripod is included in the price. Wooden tripods and wooden mount is better at reducing vibrations. The binocular mount is constructed of the best marine plywood available, sealed and 4 layers of weather proof automotive PU spray, stainless steel and teflon.
