Strong, sturdy and reliable, the 3046 tripod is the ideal studio tripod. The geared center column has a non roll-black feature and has a threaded 3/8" mount on the bottom of the column to allow low-angle shots. Twin shark leg design, built-in spirit level and rubber feet with retractable spikes.

For a combination of price, function, and load this is the best tripod I have found. I use it for photography and astronomy. Rock solid within it weight limits. Perfect for any SLR and most 90mm short focal length telescope. Depending on the head you use it is great for both terrestrial and astronomical use.
There's some trade off. It's lighter than the other similar Bogan models but not as quick to set up. It's lighter weight is more important to me.
