This isn’t just any binocular tripod adapter! Sure, the Celestron RSR Binocular Tripod Adapter mounts to most any pair of binoculars and connects them to a camera tripod for hand’s free, steady viewing, but it also comes with a unique RSR Reflex Sight Rail that accepts a “red dot finder”! Just think of how cool it will be to align your red dot finder to the view through your binoculars. Not only will it look high-tech, you will be able to locate objects more quickly and easily.
The RSR Binocular Tripod Adapter itself is simple yet effective design. The top part of the adapter threads into the tripod adapter port of most binoculars with a 1/4-20 bolt, and then the foot of the adapter connects to a standard photographic tripod via the tripod's mounting screw. You are welcome to use the binocular tripod adapter section just like this if you want. The Reflex Sight Rail is a separate piece, and can be attached to the tripod adapter in just a few seconds.
Once your binoculars have been securely connected to your tripod, you can enjoy hands-free observing for long periods of time without arm fatigue or image shake.
As we’ve mentioned earlier, the RSR portion of the binocular tripod adapter attaches in seconds. It has a narrow rail at the top to accept any standard reflex sight, or red dot finder. If you don’t already have one, Celestron makes the StarPointer and StarPointer Pro finderscopes, and either one attaches easily to the rail.
A Binocular Tripod Adapter is essential for larger, heavy binoculars as well as high magnification models of over 12X. You will be amazed at how much easier binocular observing will become once you've taken the load off! Small objects that are hard to resolve when hand-holding will appear steady when your binoculars are on a tripod, this is especially true for astronomical objects like Saturn or Jupiter. Want to see the rings of Saturn or the moons of Jupiter? Put your binoculars on a tripod!
Please Note: While most binoculars on the market today have a tripod adapter port, not all of them do. Before you buy a Binocular Tripod Adapter, check your binoculars to make sure they will be compatible. Most adapter ports are disguised by a "beauty cover" that is about the size of a nickel or dime, and it is normally located on the bridge of the binoculars between the two objective lenses. Unscrew the cover cap to reveal a 1/4-20 threaded hole.
