10Micron: Mount for heavy duty binoculars (Standard Package) with BAG, including: BM
100L mount, counterweight bar, pier adapter for tripod, kg. 3 counterweight, strong transport carton-box with shaped foam
Wood tripod and binoculars not included.
Since ancient times, the lever principle has been utilized in order to solve problems related to lifting big loads with minimum effort and in best safety. LEONARDO BM100, the 10Micron-mount for heavy duty binoculars and spotting scopes, optimizes this principle, with the clear aim to provide all Astro and Terrestrial observers with a reliable optical platform and perfect aiming- and targeting-system. The LEONARDO BM100 mount is able to provide exceptionally sturdy instrument support, totally free of vibrations, and to ensure prolonged observation in total comfort.
The extreme variability of the Leonardo-mechanical system enables you to observe any astronomical or terrestrial object conveniently by utilizing it´s 4-axis pointing system.  Friction adjustment hand-knobs in elevation and horizontal rotation enable the user to precisely match the preload of the parallelogram for retaining a fluid-movement with varying instrument weights – and to fine-tune all mount-movements to effectively compensate for accidental shock or sudden intense wind-gusts.
