Add a new and fun dimension to binocular stargazing by using an attached smartphone to help you identify and learn about what you’re observing! The Orion Smartphone Holder for Binoculars with Tripod Adapter allows secure attachment of a smartphone to a binocular, so you can use your phone and a dynamic star chart application (sold separately) as a state-of-the-art guide to the stars.

When used with a smartphone running an interactive star chart application, such as Orion’s StarSeek apps, this handy holder and tripod adapter makes it easy to use your phone as a detailed tour guide to the night sky. It positions your smartphone in just the right spot above the center-hinge of your binoculars for easy reference during use. You can use the star chart app of your choice to identify objects of interest, or as a helpful guide to lead you towards areas of the sky to inspect more closely through the attached binoculars. It’s like having an astronomy expert right by your side while you enjoy the night sky!

Since a tripod adapter is included, you can use this nifty bracket to attach a smartphone to relatively large-aperture astronomy binoculars, which require a tripod for stable views. Virtually any binocular equipped with a tripod adapter socket will work with the Orion Smartphone Holder for Binoculars with Tripod Adapter, as long as there is at least 1 3/8" (35mm) of space around the socket. Any field tripod featuring a 1/4”-20 threaded post is compatible with the included tripod adapter. Once the bracket is attached to the binoculars, and the binoculars are attached to a tripod, you’ll enjoy stable views through the binocular of the area of sky displayed on your smartphone screen. Want to inspect a particular object with your binoculars? Just move the binoculars until an object of interest is centered on the attached smartphone’s screen, and then look into the binocular eyepieces. The object will be right there, or very close-by, for magnified study.

The sturdy smartphone holder is fully 360° rotatable, with 32 convenient click-stop positions and a handy lock-tab. The holder’s wide range of 2” to 4.5” makes it compatible with virtually any size smartphone, even when encased in a protective bumper. Foam pads on the side clamps and end clamps prevent scratches.
