Besides making night sky observation much more comfortable, a parallelogram mount gives a big range of eyepiece height without adjusting the tripod- and without loss of target (ideal for sharing the view with kids). The UBM (Universal Binocular Mount) is an aluminum parallelogram-type mount. Like its predecessor the Unimount, they are 100% made in the USA.
Even with all those pivot points, there is virtually zero slop or backlash. While observing the night sky, you’ll feel like the mount is not even there. Because all axis’ are in perfect balance, the binocular simply “floats”, while you effortlessly point it in any direction. For the ultimate comfort, try it with a reclining lawn chair.
Choose the option with two 5 lb. counterweights and the UBM will easily handle binoculars as large as the Bottom-mount binoculars attached directly to the included dovetail base. For binoculars that have a tripod adapter socket on the front of the body, order the Farpoint FAR-sight. The UBM does not include a tripod. For 10 lb. binoculars, the Manfrotto 055 Aluminum 3-Section Tripod is recommended.
- Farpoint’s universal binocular mount
- Tripod adapter for tripods with 3/8″-16 mounting screw
- Parallelogram with a 12 pound capacity.
Option to add the Swing Hinge, which is what gives the mount 5 degrees of motion, and two 5 lb counterweights for safe mounting of your binocular.
The UBM’s total weight, including the two 5lb. counterbalance weights, is 16.4 lbs. The collapsed length is 35″, and fully extended measures approximately 51″.
