The Orion Large Tritech Tripod features aluminum, closed-channel legs to their two-way fluid pan head. It is well-suited for almost any viewing or photographic situation. Mount your field glasses, spotting scope, or camera on the quick-release shoe; it locks in tight, with no "play." The elevator crank adjusts the head up or down 12" to the desired height. The Tritech's three-section channel legs have an anodized pewter-tone finish and are center-braced to enhance stability. Clamp-style leg locks open and close in a snap.
