Vanguard BA-185 Binocular Tripod Adapter
The Vanguard BA-185 Binocular Tripod Adapter steadies your binocular for clear, relaxed, hands-free viewing without vibration.
It works with any binocular that has a standard 1/4″-20 threaded adapter socket, and its thin profile is especially useful with roof prism models as it will allow you to set the binocular to the minimum interpupillary distance without interference.
It should be noted that binoculars with 50mm objectives and larger may experience an obstruction.
For mounting on tripods, heads, monopods, window mounts, and other support systems the adapter has a standard 1/4″-20 mount.
So, why mount your Binoculars to a Tripod?
Obviously mounting your binoculars to a tripod is usually done to steady they image, be this because the binoculars are of a very high magnification or in some cases for people who have unsteady or shaky hands. Other people use a tripod for convenience freeing up their hands to do something else or if you want your binoculars trained onto a specific subject for long periods of time, like a wildlife artist for example. Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts will also sometimes mount their binoculars onto a tripod if they are located at a fixed vantage point making it easier for them to scan wide areas looking for game.
