Tripods Quick tripod guide 

Tripods are to support your telescope or camera… obvious… but consider the following: 
How heavy is the equipment you have to mount? 
 
How tall are you and anyone that you may wish to share with? 
 
Is your telescope angled or straight? 
 
How much weight are you prepared to carry around? 
 
Do you wish to digiscope on this tripod? 
 
How much are you prepared to spend? 
 

All of these considerations will guide your choice of tripod through aluminium or carbon fibre legs, fluid damped or ‘twist to lock’ style heads, height of tripod and centre of gravity adjustable quick release plates.  We have made our selection of tripods from the Velbon and Manfrotto ranges with Gitzo generally available to special order.
