The low version of the Hercules tripod is the perfect option astrophotography with a Newtonian telescope! The low centre of gravity makes it an exceptionally stable platform for imaging and is particularly resistant to wind.
Made of the finest beech wood treated for outdoor use, the Hercules offers excellent stability, vibration damping and heavy load capability. The base plate is finely CNC machined and anodized.
The height of the tripod can range from 470 mm to 520 mm via aluminium extenders. The extenders are reversible, offering the possibility of a rubber or metal tip. The triangle support is laminated beech and has five holes for 1.25" eyepieces and three holes for 2" eyepieces, as well as a section to hold small parts such as screws, filters, etc. The tripod legs also feature three holes each for 1.25" & 2" eyepieces.
