Keep both eyes open wide for stargazing fun with this complete binocular and tripod bundle! The included 15x70 Astronomy Binoculars and versatile Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty Tripod work perfectly together, making it easy to scan the skies and enjoy bright, stable views.
With big 70mm objective lenses and 15-power magnification, our Orion 15x70 Astronomy Binocular is an excellent choice for those looking for bright, high-power views of the night sky. See the moons of Jupiter, craters and mountains of the Moon, and hundreds of deep sky objects from dark skies. These big binoculars are also great for chasing open star clusters, even from less than inky-black urban skies. Light transmission and view contrast is optimized by virtue of high quality BAK-4 prisms, fully multi-coated optics, and internal baffling. In addition to great nighttime performance, these 15x70s also provide wonderful views of daytime terrestrial fare as well, including birds, wildlife, and scenery. Eyeglass wearers can enjoy the view through these affordable performers without removing their corrective lenses, thanks to a luxurious 18mm eye relief. Foldable eyeguards provide helpful protection from distracting peripheral light sources, and they conveniently fold down for comfortable use with eyeglasses. These 15x70 binoculars come with a convenient tripod adapter for easy attachment to the included Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty Tripod.
Speaking of the included tripod - our pleasantly portable Orion Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty Tripod is ideal for use with big binoculars like the included 15x70 model. For anything more than casual use you need a field tripod that's very stable, strong, and capable of movement with fluid smoothness. Our Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty tripod fills the bill perfectly, providing heavy-duty support for binoculars so you can save your arms and shoulders from the aches associated with holding big binoculars for extended periods. The Orion HD-F2 Paragon Tripod is constructed almost exclusively of aluminum, making it stronger at key stress points where other tripods fail. It features large, adjustable aluminum-tube legs with robust lock lever clamps for convenient setup and takedown. Each leg features graduated reference etchings so you can quickly and easily extend each leg to the same preferred length - a great timesaver when trying to setup gear in a hurry. The tripod legs are tri-braced to the center elevator housing for extra stability. The tripod is 72" tall when fully extended; placing the included 15x70 Astronomy Binoculars comfortably at eye level for most people.
The Orion Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty Tripod comes with a precise, two-way fluid-type pan head. It features tension adjustment knobs on both axes for wonderfully smooth, controlled altazimuth motion. The pan head can be raised or lowered on its aluminum rack-and-pinion elevator post with a hinged hand crank. Panning is easy with the 11"-long adjustable handle. A quick-release 1/4"-20 dovetail shoe makes attaching and detaching your instrument from the pan head a snap. Other nice tripod features include convertible cushion/spike feet and built-in bubble level.
This complete binocular and tripod bundle will astound you with great views of comets and other interesting sights - day or night!
