BRESSER Slider Binocular Mount with Tripod

The BRESSER Slider Binocular Mount, with its revolutionary design, offers unprecedented comfort for binocular observation - during the day and at night. Thanks to the variable extension length of the two support rails (crossbars), the cardanic mount head, and various adjustable slip couplings, almost all binocular positions can be selected easily. Once set, the binoculars remain in their respective position thanks to the counterweights. During observation, it is usually not necessary to touch the binoculars. Whether you want to observe standing up, sitting on a swivel chair, or lying down on a mat or bed, everything is possible. For wheelchair users, the mount is also an interesting alternative to normal tripod solutions, where usually one tripod leg is always in the way.

A Steady Image Despite Large Binoculars and High Magnification

Especially when observing for a long time, even medium-weight binoculars weighing 500 grams or more and moderate magnifications of 10x or more make life difficult. Already after a short while, the pictures blur, and the arms get tired. Certainly, a high photo tripod can bring a significant improvement. But this solution is very limited in terms of the binoculars’ movability and the position of the observer.

The BRESSER Slider Binocular Mount offers far more possibilities. Almost all desired binocular positions can be reached effortlessly. The patented design, with 2 counter-moving support rails (crossbars), is guided on special linear roller bearings inside the mount head with zero play. This allows the observer to vary the extension length as desired with little muscle power. The sliding resistance can be infinitely adjusted using 2 adjusting screws. In the middle of the slider mount’s centre of gravity, there is an axle with an adjustable slipping clutch for the tilting and rotating movement. All bearings operate with absolute precision and backlash-free. For quick leveling, there is even a 30 mm fluorescent circular bubble in the base of the mount, which is easy to read even in the dark.

Cardanic Mount Head

The cardanic mount head works like a ball head. However, it offers a significantly higher load capacity and more stability. Here, too, the sliding resistance of all moving parts can be adjusted to the user’s specific needs. The mount head offers several mounting holes for mounting a binocular holder via a 1/4-inch photo screw or a standard GP prism clamp for mounting small telescopes. In addition, there are various holes on the side cheeks of the mount head for further accessories such as red light reading lamps, smartphone holders for the use of sky apps, or LED viewfinders for quick sighting of celestial objects.

Counterweights

Several counterweights enable the exact balancing of the binoculars or telescope. Two counterweights of each 2.5 kg, 1.25 kg, and 0.5 kg are included in the package and can be attached to the rear end of the mount on the mounting bolts on both sides. With the 2 included spring clamps, the weights are secured on the bolts. Instead of the counterweights, a filled sandbag can also be attached to the existing mounting hook. This reduces the transport weight for planned excursions.

Versatile Use

The BRESSER Slider Mount can be used with binoculars of up to 3.5 kg weight. It is also a real help for obtaining blur-free images with much smaller binoculars during long-term observations. It is mounted with an optionally available binocular tripod adapter, which is attached to the mount head with a 1/4-inch photo thread screw.

Install an optionally available standard GP prism adapter on the mount head and use your travel telescope in a completely different way: as a high-quality spotting scope for landscape and sky observation.

Tripod Adapter

The matching tripod adapter for using the BRESSER stainless steel Tripod ST-3 is already included in the slider mount’s scope of delivery. It converts the standard large 3/8-inch photo tripod thread (internal thread) in the base of the slider mount into a metric M10 thread. This means that after removing the adapter, a stable standard photo or video tripod with a 3/8-inch mounting screw can also be used.

The BRESSER Field Tripod ST-3

The solid and height-adjustable tripod with double tripod leg clamp is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and perfect for direct use with the BRESSER Slider Binocular Mount. Adjust the extendable stainless steel tripod to the desired base height and thereby pre-select your favorite observation position. For example, for landscape observation while standing or sitting, the full tripod height should be used. For night sky observation, a lower setting is recommended for a comfortable viewing position while sitting or lying down. The tripod is equipped with a standard GP mounting head and a central screw with metric M10 threaded shaft.
