Need help setting up Vixen Polarie
« on: 14:13:22, 02 March, 2014 »
Hello all,

I've just purchased a Vixen Polarie and can't seem to get it to fit together using 2 Manfrotto ball mounts. The problem is that the circular Polarie attachment disk wont screw on to the bottom of the mount (the thread on the mount seems to be too big)? I'm guessing I need some kind of adapter?

Any help/advice greatly appreciated.

Juan (newbie)

I'm not familiar with the tracker but I'm guessing you may need a 1/4" to 3/8" camera thread converter, as these are the two standards used

Have a look at this at Amazon and see if it fits the bill
