Radian Telescopes Quick-Release Carbon Tripod

I’m quite satified with it so far although I haven’t used it much.it’s really sturdy and well built. I like the fact also that it suited for my height. I’m still setting up for astrophotography.

The ultimate tripod!

This is hands down the best tripod I’ve ever used. It’s light yet super sturdy and solid. The quick release plates are very handy for switching from my Star Adventurer to a ball head in seconds!

This is a great tripod.

This is the most stable tripod I have ever purchased. It makes setting up my IOptron SkyGuider Pro very easy.

Radian CF Tripod...

I love the sturdiness of this tripod. Also... the adjustable legs extend to a height that makes it possible to easily view through the polar scope without having to lean over (much) to check polar alignment status. Note: I am 6'2"... so it is nice to find a tripod that can extend to a height that is comfortable to check polar alignment status.
