"Tripod"

Is there a tripod or system if I'm glassing with my binos on the tipod that can keep at the exact hight and switch to my angle spotter. I have to lower the tripod on the switch and refind the animal.

Not that I know of, but I would like to have the same thing in my setup...
It would have to be an adjustable base plate (I guess it could be solid, but you would have to have the exact thickness for it to work), for either spotter or binos, depending on which one sat lower on the tripod? In your case you would need a thicker base plate for your binos, if I'm understanding you correctly? If you figured out the exact measurement, you could have one CNC, but that might get a little $$$!
Anyway...
I will be watching this thread to see what you come up with, thanks!

I've seen mounts with both the binos and spotter on it. I don't know if they were custom built. It would take a sturdy tripod.

I simply went and bought another tripod and have my 15 x 56's on one and my inline spotting scope on the other and set them up side by side.

Works great and the 2nd tripod added 2 lbs to my load....nothing at all basically.

PS-I'll text ya a pic or 2 of my set-up

Straight spotting scope is the answer. I switched from angled to straight and have loved it. I can switch my binos to the spotter with no tripod adjustment and the spotter is pretty much right on the animal immediately.

Thanks Robb my # is on your vmail. Another option is when I use my binos I extend the neck on my tripod then drop it when the spotter is used, but with uneven ground it will take practice.

This is what I came up with last night. I usually carry my angled spotter and a Slik Mini tripod. Time permitting, I can take it off and put this adapter on...or just keep it on. The rifle reticle ends up right where I was looking. It only weighs a couple ounces. The level was a last second design change. Had one lying around.

Just rotate your spotter and lean slightly to one side.

Rifle adapter.

Here is the spotter with my 3d printed phone scope already on it.

Here is a universal bino mount I made as well.

I'm pretty much on board with switching to a straight through spotter is the easiest transition to make from binos, to spotter...

Anybody in the market for an ATS 80 HD? Haha!
