Introducing the Astro Pro 187 Heavy Duty Photographic Tripod: an ideal tripod system for observational astronomy through large astrobinoculars, spotters and small telescopes - and also an excellent camera mount and platform for camera tracking devices, such as the Vixen Polarie, Astrotrac and iOptron SkyTracker. The tripod itself is constructed from high performance aircraft-grade aluminium making it ultra-lightweight (weighing in at 2.39kg), but extremely stiff and sturdy - easily supporting loads of up to 8kg. Its legs are a three section collapsible system with quick release clamps. Best of all is its height - at 187cm, the Astro Pro 187 is the most lofty tripod in its price bracket and tall enough for most people to observe the zenith with.
The Astro Pro 187 Heavy Duty Photographic Tripod comes with removable Quick Release Plate (also available as an extra item), featuring a standard 1/4" Whitworth camera-mounting bolt, a bi-directional super-smooth fluid head, which is operated and locked by a single large knurled knob (for easy operation with gloved hands). The head also features a large bubble level, with a smaller circular level and a magnetic compass present the top of the tripod. More... People who bought this item also bought:
