Observing the Milky Way's scattered stars, distant nebulae and bright comets is certainly more enjoyable with two eyes. So a good pair of binoculars can be not just an addition to a telescope, but often even a replacement for it. Problems arise as aperture and weight increase. Observing with binoculars weighing more than 1 kg from hand becomes almost impossible, and a photographic tripod does not provide a comfortable position for the observer.

The Parabino LT Parallelogram mount will allow you to mount your binoculars securely and ensure comfortable observation. It is one of the lightest and most compact in its class and can provide comfortable observation with small astro binoculars with aperture up to 70mm and weight up to 1.5kg. The mount is mounted on a standard photo tripod with a 3/8'' thread.
The central stand of the mount is assembled on a thrust bearing, which provides excellent smooth rotation in azimuth. The elevation pointing is accomplished by a swivel bracket on which the binoculars can be attached via an L-adapter. The Parabino LT allows the binoculars' height to be adjusted within 75 cm. Regardless of the height of the parallelogram, the set direction of the binoculars always remains the same, which can be useful for stargazing excursions. An adult, having found an object in the binoculars, can easily lower the parallelogram down to the child's eye level, for example. The object will remain in the field of view.
