    using 10x70 bino, heavy enough to need a mount,
    tripod, fluid pan head ...
    my 8-year-old-hardly-portable-parallelogram-mount
    failed recently, and I replaced it with an orion
    paragon tripod with "fluid pan head."  
    but I'm finding this pan head has design flaws and
    I am sending it back, so... I would appreciate any
    feedback from users using bino mounts,
    what brand, what model, and where to get it.
    I saw 2 at recent star party, but it was very dark,
    and very crowded with little time to talk.  they
    were either identical or very similar and I think
    one was a bogen, but did not get a model no.
    local photographic stores do not carry this stuff.
    so far looking on the web has been problematic as
    I'm not finding photos of the bogen mounts.  I will
    continue to search, meanwhile, if you have a mount you
    use and like, please send me the specs.  thanks!
