Celestron does it again!

Great spotting scope stand for the range and doubles as an astronomy telescope stand for involving my grandkids in astronomy.

Horrible for astronomy

I wanted to use this product for astronomical use. The vertical view stops at about 45 degrees. Its the worst idea ever to limit the vertical range so drastically. My height is 5'6 and it was a bit short for me after the legs were extended. Screws come loose every couple of turns. It is light. Easy to set up.

Solid performer, with a few limitations.

By

from Boise, Idaho  -  Casual/ Recreational

It is important to know that this unit has a limited travel range for both the fine / slow motion adjustments. (altitude and azimuth) The fine adjustments are not infinite (or 360 degree) and limit the amount of the adjustment using the cables on both axis. What this means is that once you "close in" on your subject- the fine adjustment while using the flex knobs is limited to a fixed range. Therefore, if you are near the end of the range and want to go beyond the "limit", you must first "back off" the fine adjustment, re-center the scope/binoculars, and then continue using the flex cables. The other limitations of this tripod are it's 45" height (perfect for use with a stool- though,) it's tendancy to creep slightly if the load is unbalanced, and it's inability to tilt straight up. That being said, this is a sturdy platform tripod- and if your scope/binocular/camera is properly balanced- it is a accurate means of fine tracking and control while viewing or taking photos. I have used it for spotting distant wildlife and it works very well for this purpose as well as a solid photographic tripod.

Not was I was hoping for.

By

This is certainly not a tripod for use binoculars. It is sturdy enough just not high enough and very limited vertical angle adjustment.

Good toy for begginers

By

from Kuwait  -  Casual/ Recreational

Bulky, Heavy, I could not track the moon at 50 degrees vertically. I think they need to tighten the bolts. The only thing that I liked is the rotation horiznotaly, I might use it for panoramatic photo. I have attached my Canon 40D to C90 Spotting Scopes using : 1- Celestron T-adapter for NexStar 4 2- Adorama T-Mount for Canon EOS . and this is the result

Very good for the price

By

from The UP of Michigan  -  Casual/ Recreational

The primary use for this tripod will be with the C-90 Celestron spotting scope . It will be used for target spotting and bird watching . The tripod provides a very stable platform for the C90 and is easy to set up . As for cons it could be a bit taller and the leg adjustment would be easier if they were a clamp style rather than set screw . It's well worth the money[...]
