Need your help in determining which mount and tripod will function best with the APM 100 90 degree binoculars. The weight is 16.43 lbs so I would need a mount that would adequately manage this. there are two I was considering; the first was a Stellarvue M2C mount and tripod and the other a Manfrotto 405 large 3 axis head and H/D tripod but would consider others as well.
I know it has the Stellarvue M2C has the load capacity but can be adapted to hold the APM 100 and if so what would I need to do so?
The Manfrotto 405 has a load capacity of 16.53lbs and with the APM 100 weighing in at 16.43 is cutting it pretty close.
Any help ,advice, options, ideas ,direction or otherwise is much appreciated!
Thanks for your help!
