2" Steel Field Tripod for iEQ45 CEM60 Minitower
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.
