APM Forkmount for Large Binoculars

The APM Forkmount is a development of the reknowned Binoptic Fork II and likes this it offers you a vibration-free, high load-carrying capacity manual mount for your Binoculars or Telescope.

We recommend this mount as the perfect match for the APM 100mm,120mm ED-APO Binocular and small to medium size telescopes. The fork offers a special mounting plate that allows direct connection to a binoculars mounting foot. This plate uses the Vixen GP dovetail format and slots into a 150mm GP format saddle. This allows the fork to be used with telescopes easily.

The encoder version of the mount includes includes a pair of 8192 step encoders, cable and a mounting bracket designed for use with either the Nexus DSC or Nexus II Digital Setting Circles. The Nexus is NOT supplied as standard. Please also see this mount offered as a package supplied with either the Nexus II or Nexus DSC
