One thousand and one. No, we are not talking about the Arabian Nights, rather we are talking about the available selection of suitable binoculars for observation. One thousand and one is approximately the number of binoculars between which you can choose.
Which binoculars fit your tripod? And what connects the two? Just like a telescope lens, astronomical binoculars on their own are like a three-legged horse. You just won’t reach your destination with it. You also need a mount and a tripod. However, the heavier the binoculars, the more difficult it is to make the right decision.
We have six created different sets for you, consisting of Omegon Brightsky binoculars, a massive Neptune fork mount and a stable carbon tripod. If any binocular and tripod combo has ever earned the description of “solid as a rock”, this is it.
Why Brightsky large binoculars are the right choice for astronomers
Brightsky large binoculars come in three different objective aperture sizes, namely 70mm, 80mm and 100mm, and with an eyepiece of either 45 or 90 degrees. Tempered lenses in a sturdy magnesium casing offer clear views of the sky or distant objects in nature. So that your binoculars can also accompany you on every outing throughout the years, they are also waterproof and nitrogen-filled.
Brightsky large binoculars come with two 18mm flat field wide-angle eyepieces for fantastic observations. Other astronomical eyepieces can also be inserted, just like with a telescope.
The Brightsky binoculars set complete with fork mount and tripod
Neptune: the best fork mount in the Galaxy?
The Neptune premium fork mount is a new development for demanding binocular astronomers. Namely for those who have finally had enough of vibrating instruments. This fork mount competently supports large binoculars up to 290mm in width and nine kilograms in weight. Stable profiles and large Teflon bearings provide silky-smooth movement along both axes and make it simple to navigate the skies. We pay particular attention to quality during manufacturing – which is why we have these fork mounts manufactured exclusively in Portugal.
Superior carbon tripod – with central crank column
So that the foundations are also right, the binocular and fork mount combination sits on top of a carbon tripod having 40mm legs. Ultralight construction but uncannily sturdy: this tripod carries up to 50 kilograms in weight. The tripod can be raised to a height of 1.9m and has an additional central crank column. This means you can easily and quickly position your binoculars perfectly for each observer.
Who are the sets suited to?
– For amateur astronomers who want to finally have binoculars which will satisfy them for years
– For observer who don’t want to keep searching and don’t want to have to keep compromising
– For astronomy enthusiasts who want to experience the night sky intensely using both eyes

– Brightsky large binoculars with 70, 80 or 100mm objective aperture and two 18mm flat field eyepieces
