Best Tripod Ever

Before the Radian tripod was released, I was contemplating buying a heavy duty tripod for my Star adventurer. As I was shopping for a tripod, OPT announced the release of this tripod so I gave it a shot. This tripod is as heavy duty as they come. This tripod is very stable and I love the height when it’s fully extended. Makes it much easier for me to polar align instead of getting on the around to look for Polaris.

The best tripod I have ever owned

Without a doubt, the best tripod I have ever owned. Has every option much more expensive tripods have at a percentage of the weight. I have put close to 50lbs in astrophotography gear on it and didn't budge whatseover. Bonus is the removable monopod leg which I can double for daytime shooting!
