More About Tripods
Make sure when you select your tripod that it has the correct weight for the device you're mounting. A heavy pair of binoculars will cause a lighter tripod head to sag, and smaller legs may not support a massive telescope. Stronger the materials in the legs is always better, but with a small digital camera you will likely not need a super heavy duty tripod. If portability is important, light weight and easily packed tripods are perfect, and many compact options come with an included bag for even easier transport. If you want the perfect photo, a better view of a galaxy, or to finally spot that elusive bird, be sure to outfit your optic with a high quality tripod.
