Telescope and spotting scope vibrations are caused by windy conditions, unsteady mounts/tripod or accidental bumps to the instrument, and result in reduced image quality whether observing or photographing. Celestron's set of three Vibration Suppression Pads reduce the time the scope resonates with vibration by nearly 100%, and also decrease the amplitude of the vibrations.
The pads fit between the bottom of the tripod legs and the ground, a simple and functional solution to the problem of image disturbance. They work on most any surface: grass, dirt, concrete, asphalt and wood. They are suitable for both telescopes and spotting scopes, and are made of high-quality Sorbothane® pads (recognised worldwide as the ultimate material for isolating vibrations, dampening noise and attenuating shock) unlike cheaper imitations using silicon or synthetic pads.
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.
