For the price of this tripod, and it’s capability, I have to give it 5 stars. I needed something heavy and stuffer than my carbon fiber tripod for tracking the stars. This fit the bill and cost less than $100!
Great lightweight tripod 3/8” mount
Ordered this for my Sky-watcher Star Adventurer, perfect for the task.
Sturdy but very short
Sturdy and lightweight, but very short...a little over waist high with no adjustmentso anyone near 6 ft will have to crouch waaay down for polar alignment.
I'm happy with the website, the shipping and the product. Thanks.
Fine so far
Works fine so far- do not see any problems arising
I had been using a pretty decent portable photography tripod for my new SkyGuider Pro from Ioptron, and that was OK till I added a 72 mm refractor. The combination was just too heavy for the old tripod, so I decided to go with Ioptron’s recommended 1.25” tripod. It’s heavier (though not much!) but so much more stable and the mounting connection, which was designed for the SGP is perfect. Could not be happier, and much more confident in the quality of my tracked images.
