Tripod mount quick fix new
      #5529312 - 11/20/12 02:18 AM

Aloha CN, I have a new pair of Celestrons and while I spend some time making a real mount, I was wondering if anyone has some relatively quick tricks to modify the plastic adapter mount that came with the binoculars. I just want something that will stabilize the Binoculars while I use them on my tripod. Thanks all

I saw somebody mention in another thread that they filled the hollow plastic stalk of the adapter with epoxy resin to stiffen it.

Quik fix-throw the pastic tripod adapter away & purchase a metal one..if it snaps you'll regret it,try Garrett optical,oberwerk,eagle optics,bhphoto, or others

Thanks i'll look into that resin option, and Daniel I most defiantly will dump this adapter but I need something for now while I build a more stable and durable mount. Thanks for all the help
