Binocular observing set-up

I was inspired by Clearwater Dave's $30 (30 dollars) setup:

Well, another option, this tripod is also available for only 2300 euros...!.🤤

My reading of it is that it's the parallelogram mount, not the tripod, that is EUR 2300 - the tripod is extra (they recommend Geoptik or 10Micron tripods). Looks like a decent mount; a tad more sophisticated than even the (no longer being made) UA parallelograms.
