Will this work with a pair of Clubmann 8x30 binoculars which are very old.

If the binoculars look like the image shown on the right of our binocular information page (click here). Which have a finger-sized bridge in the middle, then yes, the Opticron Centre Focus mount will clamp around the bridge and allow fitting to a tripod.

Please advise whether this Opticron mounting bracket will fit a Zeiss Telarem 18 x 50 porro type binoculars.
In particular, what is the width of the bracket clamp - possible snagging on the bins.
Also, your website text does not advise how mounted on the tripod, does it fit with a 1/4 inch stud ?

Thank you.

I do not know if it will work with a pair of Carl Zeiss Telarem binoculars, we do not have any to try it on.

It does fit on the Carl Zeiss Jenoptem range of binoculars which look to be the same shape/design, but the only way to tell would be to try it.

The width is 32mm from shoulder to shoulder.

Yes, you are correct, the mount has a 1/4" Whitwork thread in the bottom to mount to a tripod.

No idea, we do not sell any rifle scopes.

If you are in the area, feel free to drop by and we will try it.

Most Swift Audubon binoculars had the tripod thread on the front, between the two objective lenses, in which case a Opticron L bracket should do the job.

On a couple of the Swift models, the thread was hidden by a spring loaded pin that pushed back when you screwed the L bracket in.
