Unimount with optional Ultra-Swing Hinge
Besides making night sky observation much more comfortable, a parallelgram mount gives a big range of eyepiece height without adjusting the tripod- and without loss of target (ideal for sharing the view with kids). Universal Astronomics manufactures the finest parallelogram-type mounts on the market, and they are 100% made in the USA. The basic Unimount features 4 degrees of motion, and up to 6 degrees of motion can be achieved with the addition of the Ultra-Swing Hinge and Deluxe L Adapter. Even with all those pivot points, there is virtually zero slop or backlash. While observing the night sky, you'll feel like the mount is not even there. Because all axis' are in perfect balance, the binocular simply "floats", while you effortlessly point it in any direction. For the ultimate in comfort, try it with a reclining lawn chair (Ultra-Swing option recommended). Six degrees of motion allows viewing almost the entire sky without moving your chair!
Comes with 10 lbs. of counterweight, so it will balance binoculars as large as the Oberwerk 25x100IF. Bottom-mount binoculars attach directly to the included dovetail base. For those with a narrow IPD (inter-pupillary distance), the standard dovetail should be upgraded to the "riser dovetail", which adds clearance so minimum IPD can be achieved without interference with the binocular's objective tubes. For binoculars that have a tripod adapter socket on the front of the body, order the Deluxe L Adapter. If you prefer an L adapter that does not swivel, choose the Oberwerk Heavy-Duty L Adapter. Need a tripod? The Oberwerk Wood Tripod is perfect for this mount.

  • 4 to 6 degrees of motion (depending on options)

Ultra-Swing Hinge
The Ultra-Swing Hinge adds even more flexibility to the Unimount head, allowing panning of almost the entire sky from a reclined lawn chair- without having to move the chair.
$50.00
Panning Handle
The panning handle helps "steer" the binocular, and is especially recommended if the Unimount includes the Ultra-Swing Hinge. Includes mounting block.
$40.00
UA Deluxe L Adapter
Required for mounting smaller binoculars that have a 1/4-20 threaded socket at the objective end of the body. Adds another degree of motion.
$30.00
UA Dovetail / Riser (Upgrade)
This is an upgrade to the standard dovetail plate that is included with the mount. The 1" riser adds clearance for bottom-mount binoculars, and is often necessary to prevent interference with the binocular's objective tubes at tighter IPD settings..
$25.00
