I tried this little experiment last observing session with the binoculars. It didnt work too well for astronomy, and the angle of elevation doesnt change.

 

I need a better mounting solution for my 10x70 Fuji's, likely an Orion Monster Parallelogram some day.

 

For now, I will continue to use my monopod with the same ball head, but just adjust the angle by angling the monopod more with respects to the ground to observe higher in the sky then pictured.
