Good for you, Roger! You won't be disappointed. When I went to get a tripod mount, I went to Best Buy. They had 3 mounts, the cheapest one was about $39, but was too flimsy, the most expensive was $80, but was overkill. The one in the middle was $50 and works great, simple, stable and easy to set up.
One thing I would really like in a future binocular mount would be to be able to point it comfortably and stably at the zenith. With the mount I've got right now, 60-70 degrees is max observing range for what I've got.
