Bought this to use on the Heritage 130p mount. I now also use the mount with my DSLR attached for wide field images and I can also fit my StarTravel 80mm refractor to it. This has given great versatility from the one mount.
I bought a Vixen Porta Mount II for my Skywatcher Equinox 100ED and noticed this item as a recommended/also bought item. I'm lucky enough to have a pair of Takahashi "Astronomer" 22x60 Flourite binoculars. They are huge bins and I've never really had the best use of them as I've not found a suitable way to mount them on a tripod. I do have one of those parallelogram type binocular stands but to be honest it's a hefty awkward PITA and so the Taks don't get used much which is such a shame for a rare almost £1000 pair of bins. This bracket with the Vixen Porta Mount II have given them a new lease of life. I had first light last night and it was delightful, M42, the Pleiades, Jupiter later on the moon to name but a few... amazing. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was that I find the screw untightens but to be honest this won't happen with most other situations my Taks are big, heavy and awkward and an unusual item to mount on anything. I'm a very happy stargazer.Clear SkiesRay
