The Helium Tripod has many innovative features:

  • Provides a stable platform for all your equipment with a payload capacity of 90 kg (200 lb.) when the legs are fully
    extended, or up to 113 kg (250 lb.) maximum carrying capacity when placed at the lowest
  • Allows eyepiece placement at a convenient height with a dynamic height range for 60 cm (24
    in.) to 102 cm (40 in.).
  • The ultra-portable and lightweight design tips the scales at just 6.4 kg (14 lb.).
  • Simple and intelligent mechanics permit the legs to be expanded or collapsed in seconds.
  • Flexible 360-degree azimuth adjustment for worry free setups and azimuth alignment.
  • Large range of coarse level adjusters can applicable to flat or sloping surfaces.
  • Fine adjusters to achieve optimal level.
  • Intelligent mechanical design produces exceptional stability at all heights.
  • Swiveling feet can be fit with spikes that optimize coupling to the ground. Compatible with
    other commercially available tripod feet.
  • Two built-in bubble levels for coarse leveling (with 10 arc minutes per one-tenth inch accuracy)

The result is an exceptionally stable, portable imaging platform that can be quickly setup, leveled and aligned with the celestial pole.
