here are photos showing the 5 parts of the dual spotting system. I had a machine shop build the 2 separate brackets which they attached permanently to the centre tube of the binoculars, one on top, one on bottom.
Then they attached a camera "tripod" plate to the top of the top bracket, and I attached the other part of the tripod bracket to my camera. The 2nd bracket they built, for the bottom of the binoculars is permanently attached to the slider plate which fits onto my tripod.
The fellow at the shop also calibrated my camera with the binoculars so that whatever is seen in the middle of the binoculars is seen in the middle of the camera viewing screen at full 83x optical zoom.
Typically, I, or a member of our group looks around first & finds objects with 15x binoculars (bigger field of view), then I zero in on them with this system and get photos & video. Or, in conjunction with the group, I can also just look around with this dual system at the same time, scanning the sky. Then we see who is the first one to spot something! View all the attached photos to see all the different parts.
