Mounting the binoculars: For terrestrial use and casual astronomical use we recommend a large video and or camera tripod. We recommend the Altair Sabre mount with vixen clamps and Heavy Duty L-Bracket for more serious or extended observation especially at higher powers.
Very bright image and large field of view, well suited for observation of bright deep sky objects.
Enables use of 1.25" Light Pollution filters, such as the Altair Premium 1.25" CLS filters.
Extra large prisms with top quality multi-coatings on all optical surfaces.
High quality independently focusing 1.25" eyepiece holders - compression-fit with self centring brass inserts.
Tough, light magnesium alloy casing.

The base has a standard 3/8" Photo tripod thread and 1/4" Photo tripod adapter so you can use your giant binoculars with a standard tripod. An additional pair of in-line threaded holes allow mounting on a Vixen-format dovetail bar.
