The Orion Paragon Plus XHD Tripod provides heavy-duty support for giant binoculars, cameras, spotting scopes and scopes such as the Orion ShortTube 80, Apex 90, 102 and 127, GrandView, Arcadia and Resolux and GiantView binoculars. The Paragon-Plus XHD tripod is constructed almost exclusively of aluminum, making it stronger at key stress points where other tripods fail. It features large, adjustable aluminum-tube legs with ridged helical locks. The legs are tri-braced to the center elevator housing for extra stability.
The tripod is tall when fully extended, putting binoculars easily at eye level for most people. This extra heavy-duty tripod holds heavier loads. The Paragon-Plus XHD tripod comes with a two-way fluid-type pan head. It features tension adjustment knobs on both axes for wonderfully smooth, controlled motion. The pan head can be raised or lowered on its aluminum rack-and-pinion elevator post with a hinged hand crank.
Panning is easy with the 11" long adjustable handle. The quick-release 1/4"-20 dovetail shoe makes attaching and detaching your instrument from the pan head a snap. Other nice features include convertible cushion/spike feet and built-in bubble level. This model comes with its own case.
