    Excellent................for the price!

    [...]The product is priced low and as such is excellent for the price. Do not use extremely heavy bino's or cameras with it and you will be 100% fine and happy

        Comments about Celestron Photographic/Video Tripod w/ Quick Release 3-Way Head:

        I found quite a lot of rocking movement in the tripod head with my celestron scope> My son and I eventually dismantled it and inserted a length of pvc pipe with a channel cut for the gear mesh for raising and lowering the head, into the central tube. It's now rock solid.
        Perhaps celestron could do this at manufacture and turn a reasonable tripod into a really solid unit.

          Comments about Celestron Photographic/Video Tripod w/ Quick Release 3-Way Head:

          I used this for birdwatching with a spotting scope. It is a piece of junk, almost nothing good whatsoever. On the Celestron website you can see my full review, and all I will say here is that there were several serious things that went wrong with it in the first six months of fairly light usage. Again, if you want a full description of the tripod, go to the actual Celestron website and read what went wrong with it.

                    It fits like finger and ring.

                    No complaints at all, very nice product and inexpensive, I like it!
