Great Product for the Price
27 April 2018
I've had this tripod for a month now and have used it not only for astronomy and birding, but also for digiscoping. It is very stable.
In my opinion, this is a good tripod - in fact the best at this price point. Once setup, it is easy to use. I am happy with the finish and materials used and the bag provided to carry it is also durable.
But it is heavy, so carrying it around is a challenge. However, on the other hand, it this very weight of the tripod that provides that extra bit of much needed assurance of stability (since I use a Celestron Ultima 100 on Canon 1300D, which make the assembly heavy).
One feedback : The user manual needs to be more user friendly as first time users of a tripod can easily get confused while setting it up, causing an unreliable set up, which could result in damage to camera and lenses. So, those of you who are not very familiar with using a tripod in the past MUST be very very careful initially to get accustomed to the tripod's adjustment levers and screws before entrusting the tripod with high value cameras and lenses.
Overall great product.
