Celestron 82050 overview

  • 1Description

The TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head from Celestron is a 4-section aluminum tripod with a two-way fluid pan/tilt head. It extends from a minimum working height of 18.9" to a maximum of 70.5". Weighing 3.9 lb, the tripod can hold up to 9 lb, whether that be a spotting scope, binocular, camera, small telescope, or other equipment.

The legs can be independently set to three different angles for shooting on an uneven surface. Flip locks allow you to adjust the height of each leg, and a foam grip on two of the legs adds comfort when carrying the tripod, especially in extreme temperatures. The Center column has a ballast hook for adding a counterweight, which will lower the center of gravity, adding stability to the tripod.

The tripod features a 2-way pan/tilt fluid head with one large knob that both controls the tension and locks the head in place. A quick-release plate with a 1/4"-20 threaded stud makes attaching and detaching your equipment quick and easy. Bubble levels help ensure that your camera will be level to the horizon.

Included with the TrailSeeker is a case and shoulder strap to protect your tripod and make transport easier.

    Celestron 82050 reviews

    TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impractical for spotting scopes Seems like a nice, sturdy yet lightweight tripod and has a smooth head motion. However it uses one knob to lock down both the pan and tilt, meaning you can't lock down one and not the other motion. I use it mainly with a spotting scope and due to the weight of the scope, the head must be locked or else the scope will dip down. I would prefer to lock the tilt and have the ability to pan, but you can't do that with this scope. For that reason, I would not recommend this for spotting scope use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get's the job done I am using this tripod to hold my Celestron 20x80 binoculars. The mount is nice with a quick connect. The tripod has many nice features like being able to spread the legs further apart. I did 4 stars and not five because I would have liked to see the legs a little more beefy. It get's the job done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again My husband wanted it to put his spotting scope on. He really likes it because you can adjust the height of the tripod. Also it was a really good price.
