    Have no hesitation

    The Perfect tripod - high quality, light, portable and sturdy. Got it for a star adventurer and very happy I did. If you are hesitant with the price like I was, once in your hands, you will not be disappointed with the decision.

    Fantastic Tripod

    It isn't cheap but it is so worth it. Easily holds my Camera, large lenses, SkyGuide Pro, F5 refractor, with stability.

    This is very nice tripod, but 55 lb capacity is not realistic.

    The fit and finish of this tripod are top-notch and the quick-release plate is really convenient. If only used as a camera tripod or to hold a small visual telescope I think the Radian would be an excellent option, however the 55 lb stated load capacity is not realistic. With the legs fully extended and with heavier payloads the tripod is susceptible to axial movement, particularly if the center of gravity of the gear is not maintained directly over the center of the tripod.

    Great Tripod!

    I’m excited to use this not only for Astrophotography, but also for time-lapse photography. If it holds up well this next year I might get a second one! Strongly considering an additional quick release plate so one just lives on my tracker.
