Stargazing with binoculars is an idyllic pleasure. All the more so with our Paragon-Plus Binocular Mount. It's a parallelogram-style mount that comes complete with our sturdiest professional field tripod, the rock-solid Paragon-Plus XHD (less pan head), for one very attractive price. The mount's silky smooth motion provides relaxing views for hours on end with binoculars as large as 80mm 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. Ahhh! No more arm and shoulder strain from holding up those big binoculars for extended views! What's more, you can raise and lower the attached binocular while staying fixed on a target, a wonderful feature when two or more people of varying height are observing together. This Bino Mount provides a great way for the whole family to enjoy stable views through a great pair of astronomical binoculars. Solidly constructed of aluminum, the mount features a sliding counterweight for perfect balance and an L-adapter for attaching virtually any tripod adaptable binoculars. The maximum binocular height is 7-feet 7-inches, and the minimum height is 2-feet 7-inches. The tripod and binocular mount each come fully assembled. The XHD tripod features leg locks and graduated leg markings for quick , easy, and conveniently repeatable setup in the field. One-year limited warranty.

I paired this tripod up with a pair of Celestron 15x70 binoculars and it easily copes with them. Remember.....you will not need to use the tripod bracket supplied by Celestron with the binoculars. You simply screw the binoculars DIRECTLY onto the angle bracket at the top of the Orion tripod. (If you use the binocular bracket, this sets the binoculars at the wrong orientation on the tripod and you get restricted movement).
If you are in the market for a really great binocular tripod then this is it.
As already noted in other comment, the L binocular adapter does not fit to underside screwed binoculars (like the SkyMaster Pro 20x80). You need the Orion #7589 Binocular Mount Adapter that is just a flaty piece of metal with three holes (prized at £31 it is juts a gyp). But the existing L adapter con be juts drilled, flipped and screwed in the proper position so it is not really required a new adapter (if you are able drill two additional holes in a thick plate of alluminum).
I can have the binoculars pointing virtually upwards, and look through them without touching them! Goodbye, arm and shoulder ache!
I use mine with 15x70 binoculars and a red dot finder mounted to a pistol-grip ball head on a cheeseplate.
Holds the weight easily and operates very smoothly.
I removed the circlip from the counterweight shaft so I can remove the weight completely, which makes assembly/disassembly much easier.
I have seen plans for DIY wooden mounts. By the time you have priced up all the parts, you are better off buying one of these!
