Radian Tripod -- Proper legs for a Stellina

Very pleased with the Radian tripod for my Stellina. Disconnect the short legs from the scope and pop it onto the Radian...same connector fits both. The Radian is light, sturdy, and relatively inexpensive...perfect! Alex

Love my New Radian Tripod

I've been looking for the perfect tripod for my simple astrophotography rig for around 3 years. My search is over. Lightweight and stable as a rock, even in the windy Mojave where I shoot. Supports my DLSR w/400mm lens, ballhead and Star Adventurer without even noticing. It's tall enough for making polar alignments easy. Many other handy features, like the quick release.

Radian Telescopes Quick-Release Carbon Fiber Tripod

This tripod took a while to get to me. However, the wait was worth it. I plan on taking it with me when I go abroad to stargaze.

Great light-weight carbon fiber tripod for a great price!

Compared to other competitors, this carbon fiber tripod is 1/3rd the price, so I was a bit concerned about the quality. I should not have been worried - the tripod is very well built and the quick release feature is not something which is easy to find in other tripods. Using it with my astrophotography gear now, and very happy with it!
