Vibrations spoil your image. Vibration Suppression Pads are designed to reduce vibrations. They are a must for photography.
Vibrations come from many sources, light wind, ground, or by focusing the telescope.
We don't just sell them, we believe in them. Collimating scopes in-store used to be a chore, having to pause for a moment between adjusting the focus and inspecting the alignment. Vibration Suppression Pads reduce a 3 second vibration to just under 1 second.
