Quote:The pitch axis looks unbalanced, such that you need to clamp , change the pitch angle, and then reclamp.A counterweight for the pitch axis would balance there, but add weight, thus requiring a heavier counterweight on the other side of the tripod.Why not use a sidesaddle arrangement, to make the pitch axis pass through the center of gravity of the binocular plus its supporting half-fork ?
