Binocular Mirror

Recommended Posts

Have now got the first surface mirror and have mounted it on the mirror stand that i built from plans of the net from the photo you can see the dogs not impressed by it one bit .The complete unit is mounted on a manfrotto 055cld tripod and the head is a 141rc pan and tilt .Did try to mount it on a old camera tripod i had,but it got the shakes .I just hope the quality of the mirror is as good as the bins (no distotion) the bins are fujinon 16x70,but will also try the 10x50 fujinons on it ,when we get some clear sky again ,fingers crossed. For any one interested as where to get a mirror from the go to www.scientificmirrors.co.ok...........may your nights be clear :lol:
