I've got mine mounted on an Oberwerk surveyors tripod- topped with an 8" Helix alt-az mount. It was a tiny bit too small to fit the bino's- so I ended up having to make some aluminum spacers to widen out the width of the mount about .125": even so, I still have to remove the cover caps over the side mounted threaded inserts for the mount to fit!
I either need to provide some heat to these bino's- to keep them from dewing up so badly- or allow more time for them to acclimate to the heat and humidity. Either that, or they'll be winter bino's!
I am in the process of having a bracket machined that will allow me to mount a laser pen in place of the handle- which will be handy for pointing the bino's. Will post a picture of that when I get it back from the machinist.
Anyway, I know that there have been some unhappiness in some of the RA bino's, at least I was able to determine these will be keepers- a fact which will make Zenith viewing much more enjoyable than it has been to date.
The sliding dewshields have a snug, smooth feel to them- the metal objective caps are a snug fit that requires a bit of care to put on or take off, but have a quality feel to them- much better than some of the junk out there- and caps are provided for the focusers- open when no eyepieces are installed- and for both ends of both pairs of eyepieces. The quality and fit of all the caps are appreciated. They come in a white bag- with a pair of white gloves... not sure of the need for them?!?! If the bino's were black, mebbe...
Anyway- I'm satisfied with these so far, and cannot wait to check them out further when I don't get "dewed-out".
