About this product
Part Number: 1451055
Designed for use with the GM1000 HPS Mount and the Leonardo Binomount.
The 10Micron Aries aluminium tripod is the most rigid collapsible tripod on the market (based on measurements made using 10Microns Absolute Encoders).
Thanks to the mount’s Absolute Encoders, it is possible to measure any change in the length of a tripod leg (e.g if a tripod leg sinks into the ground during tracking). A movement of only one-tenth of a millimetre can cause an offset of 10 arcseconds during tracking! This is why 10Micron design and manufacture their own tripods.
The 10Micron Aries tripod features a folding dual tube upper leg design for maximum rigidity. The tripod legs are made of a particularly hard aluminium alloy and are fitted with large ergonomic locking knobs. The tripod feet are self levelling which makes positioning the tripod easy when on an uneven surface.
A Cordura centre-triangle 'shelf' fits between the legs to provide accessory storage (i.e. eyepieces, power supply etc).
