The FAR-Sight, by Farpoint Astronomical Research, is an elegant mounting and targeting system for binoculars.
- Durable and Attractive Stainless Steel Construction
- Graceful and Ingenious Design
- Works with Most Porro-Prism Binoculars
- Compatible with Most Parallelogram Mounts or Tripod Heads
- Comes with a Binocular Stud and Mounting Wrench
The FAR-Sight is designed to work with most parallelogram mounts or tripod heads and porro-prism type binoculars, as well as many larger roof-prism binoculars, that have a standard 1/4-inch mounting hole. The mounting hole may be found by unscrewing a cover at the end of the hinge between the objective barrels of the binoculars. The top of the FAR-Sight bracket is compatible with most red-dot finders, used to aid in locating objects of interest.
A single mounting stud is included with the purchase of FAR-Sight. Purchase additional mounting studs for use with multiple binoculars. (Extra studs may only be purchased as an option with the bracket. Studs are not sold separately).
