Tripod vibration can be a continual source of frustration for both visual observers, astro-imagers, or terrestrial photographers, and no matter how solid a telescope mount or camera tripod appears, there is always some residual vibration which can be removed.
Telescope vibration is caused by wind, an unsteady mount or tripod - or even while just focusing the instrument, which results in reduced image quality when observing through your telescope, or taking astro images. 
These new Vibration suppression pads are a simple and effective solution to the problems of image vibration. 
Vibration Suppression pads fit between the base of the tripod legs and the ground, and they work on any surface, such as concrete, asphalt, grass, dirt or wood.
They are recommended for telescopes, spotting scopes and camera tripods. 
For visual observing, vibration reduction is especially important when viewing at higher powers and to reduce vibration caused by wind, or when simply touching the focuser knob. This not only applies to astronomical observation but also for the use of terrestrial spotting scopes.
For astro-imaging, a reduction in the effects of ambient vibration caused by wind and a person moving about near the tripod leads to sharper, more crisp images with more detail. What's more, an increase in the proportion of acceptable sub-frames means you have more data to work with.
For terrestrial observing, simply put, you can use your spotting scope at higher powers and get a steadier image while digiscoping.
The products is made from two different types of plastic polymer, the black components being harder than the pink component, which absorbs and dampens vibrations extremely effectively. A 50% reduction in "settling down" time is possible, improving the performance of your telescope mount or camera tripod considerably.
The pads weigh about 120 grams each, measuring 78x25mm and come in a set of 3x units, one for each tripod leg.
