A quality field tripod with 2" OD stainless steel legs and a metal spreader, to fit the iOptron iEQ45 and CEM60 mounts.
Why a tripod? Tripods are able to handle bumpy terrain better than piers so preferred for out-and-about field use. Generally they are more cost-effective than piers, however they are not as rigid as a (good quality) pier for imaging in particular. With very long telescopes, especially when used with mounts in Alt-Azimuth mode, you may need to be aware of leg clearance. (Check out the Mini Pier Extension product code #8032 for this). In EQ mode in Europe and North America, leg clearance is generally not an issue because the mount is tilted to the polar axis.
iOptron 2" Stainless Steel Field Tripod specifications:
The same tripod used on the iEQ45 and able to fit the CEM60
2-inch OD stainless steel legs
1320mm / 52 inch height maximum (to platform)
7.8kg weight (17.1 lbs)

Warranty note: We have recently become aware of UK companies and inviduals purporting to offer "hypertune" modifications, servicing and repair for iOptron products. There is no company in the UK authorised to repair iOptron products other than Altair Astro (official iOptron agents). We have had mounts back in for servicing after they have been modified with incorrect parts, lubrication, and internal adjustments. We will do our best to help reverse these changes at a reasonable price to get you going again. Any work which is not performed by Altair Astro will invalidate your warranty. If you require servicing or spares from Altair Astro, please contact us, or ask your official dealer to contact us on your behalf.
