The Farpoint Astro FAR-Sight is designed to work with most parallelogram mounts, binocular tripods or tripod heads and works best with porro-prism type binoculars, as well as many larger roof-prism binoculars that have a standard 1/4-inch mounting hole on the hinge between the barrels.
Farpoint Astro - FAR-Sight Binocular Mounting, Binocular Tripod Adapter and Binocular Targeting System
The mounting hole may usually be found by unscrewing a cover at the end of the hinge between the objective barrels of the binoculars. The top of the FarPoint Astro FAR-Sight bracket is compatible with almost all red-dot finders - allowing their user to locate objects of interest with greater ease. You'll love the binocular tripod adapter!

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsDo you know the max size/weight the mount can take? I currently have 15x70 bins attached with no problems, could it handle say 25 x100 (about 4.5 kg)? Also, these larger bins have a central tripod attachment - any way this can be removed to use the Farsight bracket?
Thanks in advanceQuestion by: William Blair on Mar 30, 2016 11:09:00 AMAccording to the manufacturer, 4.5 kg or even 10 kg is no problem, but you are limited by the tripod head weight capacity as well as the center post. There is no way to adapt binoculars with integrated tripod center posts to the Farsight as they cannot mount the required stud in the same way as 70-80mm binoculars with the 1/4" threaded mount in the main hinge assembly.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Mar 31, 2016 11:11:00 AM
