The Celestron Trailseeker tripod is outstanding, combining smooth fluid equipment movement with sturdy legs
The two-way fluid head with movement handle has just the right amount of resistance to help reduce unwanted jittery movement, suitable for use with video cameras and spotting scopes. One control knob adjusts both the pan and tilt axis.
The legs can be angled to three different positions, to allow for use on a wide variety of terrain, to lower the minimum height and increase resistance to being tipped over. Two legs are padded to make carrying over the shoulder more comfortable, while hand-holding the tripod in the winter won't leave you reaching for gloves.
This lightweight tripod includes a carry case for easy transport and protection.
