  • Allows eyepiece placement at a convenient height with an adjustable height range from 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.
