AOK Binoscope Platform

New AOK platform has the wonderful design. I’d like to describe how it can be used based on each user’s favorite.

1) On regular fluid heads

fluidheadsPlatform base only  (BB-130)

BB-130 has 1/4″-20 at the bottom. So for terrestrial use, I don’t think you will need anything else. Also if you are looking for most basic system, this is the one.

2)  On equatorial mounts

3) On alt-az mounts

This modular design allows to re-configure the system based on the mount you use.  I start using it with 2 x 89EDs (Nozomi). Very stable. Great platform!!
