About this product

Model:  ae_tripod_adptr_heq5_3-8

Enables HEQ5 tripods to accept 3/8" fitting accessories. 

Suitable for use with Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer, SAM, AZ Pronto, AZ5 Deluxe and AZ GTi Alt-Az mounts and any other 3/8" fitting accessory. 

This will not fit older tripods with the welded Azimuth pin as this is to wide to fit correctly. Some customers have been able to file this adapter to make it work but it's a lot of work so we don't recommend it!

Essential piece of kit

Allows me to put my SkyGuider Pro / RedCat 51 setup onto a really decent mount.

A must have accesory.

Well made and a perfect fit on my mount which has a cast locating lug. Allows the use of the sturdy tripod for other set ups including using a 3/8 ball head and DSLR, really useful bit of kit.

Great EQ5/HEQ5 Tripod to 3/8 Photo Mount adapter
Wednesday, 20 May 2020  | 

This adapter is great! I have just used it to allow use of a 3/8 Manfrotto Video head on my EQ5/HEQ5 Tripod. I will use this set-up for my heavy APM Astro binoculars.
Now, the cast/welded Azimuth pin/peg on the tripod is too wide at its base to accommodate this adapter, as previous reviews noted. HOWEVER, you donít need to file anything. Just get the 16inch EQ5/HEQ5 Extension tube. This tube has a narrower metal azimuth pin/peg at the top which accommodates the adapter, no problem. The base of the extension tube fits over the cast/welded azimuth pin/peg on the tripod,no problem.
I now have a solid Bino tripod instead of a rickety photo tripod.
Job done.
Quick and efficient ordering and delivery from FLO -as always! 👍
