Handy if you need a bit more height

Iím using a Nikon Z6 on a CEM40 and the extra few inches this provides is really helpful when checking out images of stars close to directly overhead, or when calibrating my goto. It attached easily to the 2in tripod that came with my CEM40. Ioptron told me I can also use it on their tri-pier (not the 360 though). If you are doing a lot of visual observing standing up it will be hugely useful. If you are doing pure astro photography with your camera viewed and controlled via a camera itís probably not helpful unless those extra inches helps you see past an obstruction. Mine came with two bolts and an alignment peg and was fitted in 2min.
