1. Introduction on Astronomy Binocular Tripods

Tripods are a useful accessory for any astronomy binocular, even low power astronomy binoculars, and a must-have accessory for higher power and heavier binoculars.

There are low powered, smaller and more easily transportable astronomy binoculars and then there are high powered, large astronomy binoculars.

The best way to stabilize an image through a high or low power astronomy binocular is with a tripod.
