The photos of the M1580 show some sort of an attachment part about 15cm connecting the binoculars to the tripod ball head.  What is that attachment?  Is it something standard that I can easily find at camera stores?

Asked by: M49M49
The tripod adapter is included in the packaging for the binoculars when purchased new. If you own a pair and the adapter is missing or lost, they can be purchased from Steinerpartsdirect.com

Regarding the same question yesterday, I am not talking the tripod mount that comes with the package.  I have a tripod mount with my 1580C.  The device on your photos are much longer and bigger.  They are like 6 to 8 inches long.  Do you see it?

Asked by: M49M49
The tripod adapter included in the packaging is the only tripod adapter we manufacture for that binocular. I'm not sure what picture you are seeing, but if you would like to share with us directly, you can email customer-service@steiner-service.com or create a support case at steiner-optics.com/repairs

I see some in black called Steiner Rally, what's the difference between these and the military version?

Asked by: glong
Those were more closely related to the Military Marine series of binoculars but would be similar to the Military in field of view and magnification power. The main differences were cosmetic.
