Light weight table top tripod does the job.

by thatlldo, from United States, MT Written on January 3, 2015
The Burris Spotting Scope Micro Adjust Tripod & Window Mount arrived promptly new condition. It was well packed. On first inspection the tripod seemed well made and everything worked perfectly. In the short time I have had it, no defects have been observed. The construction is solid and the locking mechanisms and the micro adjustment feature both work as they are intended. The tripod is light weight but solid and stable. It is slightly heavier and larger than the tripod that comes with the Redfield scope. The center elevation post and the legs are metal. Although the tripod is light weight, it supported my Redfield 20-60x spotting scope with no problem. I found that panning with the micro adjustments which move the scope horizontally and change the angle of elevation was a pleasure. The movement was smooth and the adjusters worked easily with no play.

On this tripod, the head of the instrument is clamped onto the tripod base. This provides for gross adjustments in angle and allows for the head to be moved off of the tripod and attached to a car window or surface of similar thickness. The the tripod itself has a metal plate to which the head is attached with the threaded pressure foot. There is no tripod mount on the main tripod. The tripod mount is integral to the removable head. At first this seemed odd to me but as I thought about it, I realized that this design provides for more flexibility in use. Not only can you move the head to another surface (like a ...

Good, solid Tripod.

by Robert Wagle, from United States, CA Written on September 23, 2014
I purchased this to go with a Barska scope I ordered. I returned the scope, but kept the tripod and am glad I did. I have several full sized tripods, but did not have a table top tripod. I have used it with another scope I purchased and it is very solid and stable. The window mount works great also. Glad I kept it....
Pros:
  • light weight
  • Solid mount
  • stable
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Spotiing scope
  • camera
Would recommend: Yes

Buyer beware

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CO Written on July 3, 2012
I have had way too much trouble with the tightening lever for the scope platform on this unit. The plastic lever is like cheese and strips as soon as you tighten it down enough to support an average spotting scope. Burris customer customer service is terrible. They slowly sent me a replacement that was already stripped and then stonewalled me so I would go away. And go away I did, after my experience I'm done with Burris. I'm buying a Nikon mount, from OP, of course.
Pros: windage and elevation adjustments are slick
Cons: Tightening lever strips ...

Compact tripod

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on October 10, 2011
Its a decent, value-priced tripod, but is only useful for small scopes. Only medium strength frame. Nice. BUT - the male scope mounting bolt on top is not long enough to engage the threads on my 80mm Bushnell scope. I'm now shopping for another, more robust tipod. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR 80mm SCOPES! I was warned, but didn't heed the warning. Wish I'd paid more attention to the cautions. My duaghter now uses it as a camera tripod.
Pros: Fine adjustments and window attachment feature
Cons: Tripod mounting screw wont engage an 80mm scope...
Would recommend: No

Best combination bench tripod/window mount.

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 16, 2011
This very fine tabletop tripod from Burris features an excecellent fine adjust panhead that can be removed from the stand and easily mounted to your vehicle's window.This combination mount is great for optics under 4 lbs.My spotting scope,binoculars and camcorder are light weight.This unit is NOT designed for 80mm spotting scopes,so it is not quite a 5 star product,but very close.
Pros: Versatility,panhead
Cons: Not for large spotting scopes...
Would recommend: Yes

Burris 300141 Spotting Scope Micro-Adjust Tripod & Window Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 22, 2010
This tripod is being used on a bench with a relatively large spotting scope so the height and the ability to adjust the height is important. The micro-adjustments for rotation and elevation work fine and for this application is probably better than a handle which requires loosening and re-tightening to adjust. The tripod appears to be made well but time will tell if the micro-adjustments retain their current adjustability attributes. I didn't need the window mount feature but I couldn't find the same tripod without it. This feature is probably responsible for the higher price.
Pros: Micro adjustments, size
Cons: Price...

Miceo adj/window mount tripod

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, LA Written on July 12, 2010
Really like the micro adjust feature and window mount function. However a table top tripod is not stable enough for an 80 mm spotting scope. Should work fine for smaller optical devices.
Pros: Price, features
Cons: Not for larger spotting scopes...
Would recommend: Yes

Decent mount for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on May 24, 2010
I purchased with the intention of scrapping the tripod and utilizing the window mount portion of the unit only. The tripod is useable for a very light weight optic.
Pros: The fine az and el adjusters worked well
Cons: It is only useful in mounting light weight optics...

easy to use micro-adjust window mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 22, 2010
This tripod mount has excellent features that I cant say enough good things about, I bought it because I wanted a window mount not really knowing what the micro-adjust was but after I received it that's probably my favorite feature, it's perfect for scanning a hillside with a spotting scope especially with higher power and keeping an animal in a scope or camera that's moving, I love this tripod mount, Burris really did a good job with this and other Burris products I own.
Pros: everything you see...
