The Celestron Heavy Duty Alt-Azimuth Tripod is perfect for mounting a pair of binoculars, spotting scope, or small telescope OTA for more stable and hands-free viewing. This tripod features a water-resistant and height adjustable aluminum tripod legs with pointed legs to improve traction to the ground. The tripod legs can be retracted to a minimum height of 81.28cm (32") and be extended to a maximum height of 114.30 cm (45").
This heavy duty tripod features slow motion control cables for fine adjustments in 4 directions: up, down, left and right. For coarser movements, you can exert strength onto the head of the mount in order to push the telescope tube to your desired location in altitude, or unlock the azimuth mount to move it manually.
Celestron was founded by Tom Johnson whose first telescope design was a simple 6-inch reflector, built for his young son. He gradually progressed to making larger scopes in more sophisticated designs. Today, the Celestron company is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing optical equipment including telescopes (computerised and non-computerised), binoculars, spotting scopes and its accompanying accessories. Celestron's legacy spans 50 years, and has grown to enjoy recognition from amateurs to serious astronomers globally. The company seeks to remain innovative by growing its product offerings, while supporting science education around the world.
