The APM fork mount is the result of user feedback and the lack of a specific mount without the issues associated with large camera tripod heads. Optimal tracking coupled with virtually no vibrations and at the same time a high load capacity are unsurpassed.
Therefore, the APM fork mount is the first choice for your giant binoculars.

Tilting up to Zenith
Through the special fork design this mount enables you to tilt up to the zenith. So you can use it for astronomy and nature observation.
The Pivot bearing is dry design. Thus the fork is easily removable. Without Pivot bearing it only weights 4.07 kg. In addition the separate base is easily assembled on the tripod.
The distance of the fork-arms ist 28 cm inside, and 36 cm outside. This fork-mount is suitable for our 100mm and 120 mm binoculars, and the very long 28x110 binoculars from APM and Helios.
