The SkyWatcher tripod extension for HEQ5 is a necessary accessory when you use a long refractor with your mount. In fact, telescopes with long tubes may hit the tripod legs when approaching the zenith.

This tripod extension fits the tripod of the HEQ5 mount but it can also be installed on the tripods of the NEQ5, EQ3, EQ5 and AZEQ5.

This tripod extension has a length of 41cm.

HEQ5 tripod extension

The tripod extension is as described and easy to fit. The extension is easily tall enough to remove any possibility that my astrophotography rig will strike my tripod’s leg.
I had a difficulty with Australia Post delivering the item to my PO Box. For some reason the package bounced between Australia Post distribution centres in Sydney and Canberra (where I live) then back to Sydney 3 or 4 times for an unknown reason. I was overseas during this period and contacted Testar to see if they could assist in resolving this challenge. They were happy to assist and with their help the package was delivered. Thanks Testar.
