The Vixen fork mount is a heavy-duty Alt-Azimuth mount made with the Vixen Astronomical Observation Binoculars in mind, but it is a great solution for a wide variety of astronomical binoculars with 80mm or more of aperture. The fork arms can be placed at a 45 degree angle or straight up. The mount and half pillar are meant to sit on the Vixen HAL130 GP Tripod (sold separately), or one with similar tripod head.

Optional Swing Bracket fits nicely between the fork arms and allows altitude adjustment of binoculars. Many astronomical binoculars have a built-in post-style tripod adapter. If your binoculars have this accessory, they will attach directly to the swing arm. Check out the "Accessories" tab to the left to see (and choose) Swing Bracket, and tripod.
