      The Blue Fireball Binocular Tripod Adapter - Slim Profile # B-02

      I use this tripod mounting adapter to stabilize my 10x50 binoculars atop a monopod when viewing the night sky. More often than not, I just leave it attached so I can grab my binoculars for a quick look using the adapter as a handle or quickly attach them to my monopod or tripod for extended viewing sessions. A sturdy and top quality product at a great price I would advise anyone owning a pair of binoculars to buy this affordable and most versatile adapter.

      5.0 Great replacement for plastic OEM part

      Pros:

      Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Works great to replace the cheap plastic adapter that comes with some budget binos. The OEM one that came with my Celestron 15x70s could not hold the binos still. This llittle adapter made a world of difference.

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I bought this for my wife to use with her Celestron 10X42 Nature series binos. This is the only one I've found that would give a small interpupillary distance.

      5.0 Works Great! Steady Binocular Viewing

      Pros:

      Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      A nifty little device that allows you to mount a small to medium set of binoculars on a camera tripod. The much steadier views improve the "bionocular experience" especially with night time sky viewing. A great inexpensive investment for you binoculars!

      4.0 Works Pretty Well

      Pros:

      Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I purchased this binocular adapter to mount my Orion Worldview 10x50 binoculars to a standard photo tripod. I primarily use the binoculars at night for astronomical viewing, and the adapter makes viewing easier and more comfortable.

      There's a little movement (i.e. the binoculars can rotate sideways) even when the adapter screw is tight, but it's not too bad. It works pretty well. If you need to mount your relatively small binoculars this is a good tripod adapter.
