    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.

                This tripod has all the features you need at a low price. Including a carrying case. I've used mine indoors and out and its worked just fine. It has no problem keeping a small compact camera steady.

                  It fits like finger and ring.
