What tripod adapter is best for the Fujinon Polaris?

First off, I wanted to say that I recently made a purchase from Eagle Optics, and the price combined with the speed of delivery and quality of packing was superb, so I wanted to specifically thank you for the fine service. 
 I had a question about the . First, I would like to ask what is their country of manufacture and/or assembly, as applicable. 
Second, I wanted to know whether an additional tripod adapter is necessary to attach these binoculars to a standard camera tripod with the screw plate. Thank you very much for your assistance.

What's the latest on the Ranger ED?

Hello Eagle Optics,
Do you have any Ranger ED 8x42, old style with open centers? If so, what is the price?

Also, I noted the old style had magnesium housings, vs. polycarbonate on the new style. Any other differences between them that effect performance?



Hi Jack,
We are out of stock of the old Ranger ED 8x42, though the exact same binocular is still available under the Vortex brand, and that would be the .

Personally, I would rate the as being a good improvement over the last generation. It’s more compact and lighter weight, and has a locking diopter and an improved optical system.

Better glass and coatings give the new Ranger ED more contrast and a brighter image. Resolution is comparable between the two models.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Best regards,
