From the field to the stars, the Meade Instruments 15x70 Astro Binoculars offers the high magnification and light gathering ability necessary to see small game far away or to discern craters on the moon. Utilizing a BAK4 Porro prism optical path provides a rich high-contrast depth of view, while the large fully multi-coated optics and objectives draw in a copious amount of light to produce bright and clear images. Whether you're bird watching or observing a meteor shower, the Astro binoculars have the power and ability to see it all.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy chassis with a rubber armored skin that offers protection against drops and impacts while providing a slip-resistant grip. A large knurled center focus wheel and right-eye dioptric correction allows for a crisp tack-sharp focus ability, while fold-down rubber eyecups allow the binoculars to be comfortably used by most users with or without eye wear. Given the large objectives and 50 oz weight, hand-holding the Astro Binoculars for prolonged periods may prove challenging; so some may want to use an optional tripod adapter to mount them for long observation periods. Tripod mounting greatly reduces shake and fatigue so you can concentrate on the views.

question

I just purchased the Meade binoculars 15x70 Astro model. How does one attach the tripod accessory to this binocular?
Asked by: Thom P.
The cap with the Meade logo on the front of the hinge unscrews. You then screw the adaptor into the threaded hole. You can then attach the adaptor and binoculars to your tripod base.
