What can the parallelogram mount do?
What makes it different to other tripod or fork mounts? Normal tripods have various disadvantages. They are often unstable, too low and are uncomfortable for viewing. A fork mount only makes sense for binoculars with angled scopes. But what about large binoculars with straight scopes? How can they be used to enjoy astronomy? Using a parallelogram mount. This is agile, can be used intuitively and has a strong metal arm which holds your binoculars at all heights and in every position. Like a Dobsonian telescope for binoculars.

There are no fixing screws, levers or similar. Simply point your binoculars towards your desired celestial object at night time - and they will stay firmly in position.
Two handles, keeping everything in hand
The large binoculars sit on L-rails with two handles which can be easily used, even when wearing gloves. Small swivels and adjustments to the visual field can be made using two freely manoeuvrable axes.
Standing, sitting, lying. Tall or short. Everything is possible.
You can decide whether to stand, sit or lie down whilst observing. Tall and short can observe together without having to adjust the height of the tripod. Move the large binoculars into the desired position and observe however is most comfortable for you.
