Hello I currently have a Twilight I mount that I'm not using and  have a pair of Oberwerk 20 X 80 binoculars in need of a stable mount. What I am wanting to know does anyone have a Twlight I modification that will let me use this mount with my binoculars.

You need something like this: ClickSnap Flip Bracket Right Angle Bracket Adapter

 

A trip to Home Depot will probably suffice.  A dovetail needs to go on the mount, which can accept some kind of screw.  1/4-20 holes on dovetails are common.  The bracket would go between the bino adapter and the dovetail.  You are probably better off making you own so that you can put two screws on the dovetail to avoid rotation.  Look for a dovetail that can accept two screws.

Do you plan on seated viewing with the Twilight?  Make sure you can find a way to sit and view comfortably because the tripod isn't tall enough to stand.  You'll have to work around the tripod legs or get a taller tripod.  Just checking.
