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)
