  • Wanted Tripod needed heavy duty

    need one to fit one of those large telescopes so a flimsy camera style one would not work

    maybe something like a surveyors style

    Best to get the weight of what you're wanting to mount and go hunting for products from there.
    I picked up a liquid head velbon that'll support 7kg from the camera place by the corner of Murray and barrick street a few weeks back, nice unit for <$300

        I've got to hit a few stores today, I'll see what I can find in that kind of load bearing for you mate.

        Any ideas on budget?

          What are u using it for? There are heaps of options depending on what it is u want to do. With guided and unguided mounts going up to and beyond 50kg if you are willing to spend the dosh.

          Maybe an EQ 5 or 6.

          Have a look at Bintel.com.au - or 'btow' who are based in malaga.

              There is this one for $200 - but it is over east so you would have to pay shipping - and it has not legs.

              [FOR SALE] EQ-5 mount - IceInSpace

              Alternatively I will sell you my EQ 6 pro for a grand
