Tripod for Celestron 20x80mm binoculars

Postby Brent M on Wed Oct 10, 2007 8:06 am

I am looking for tripod recommendations and options for my Celestron 20x80mm binoculars with the 1/4" screw mount. I need the viewing heighth to be at least 60".

Hi

Ability to handle the weight and a head that does not sag when locked are the most important features in a tripod for giant astronomy binoclars. Going light (and cheap) is always a mistake for this type of binocular. As a minimum, I would look at the Zhumell Heavy-Duty.
