    1.5" Field Tripod for SkyGuider/ZEQ25/CEM25 Mounts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid, compact construction I bought this tripod to use with the SkyGuider Pro mount. I already own an AVX mount, but wanted a mount and tripod small and light enough to be taken on trips as carry-on luggage. I will be using this mount and tripod to track the lunar eclipse January 31. I have performed a preliminary fit check in my usual carry-on bag and determined that I can get everything in my carry-on bag and still be under 45 lbs. Prior to ordering this tripod I tried mounting the SkyGuider Pro onto my usual travel tripod. There was too much flex in the tripod to use for astrophotography. � When the IOPTRON tripod arrived I attempted to mate it to the SkyGuide Pro mount and found that they have different threads. I was a little surprised, as the unit claims to be compatible with the SkyGuider Pro mount. �While I could have returned the tripod, I decided that I would only be using these two pieces of equipment together. I rethreaded the mount to fit the tripod. The two fit well together now. I have had it out two evenings and am pleased with the solid tracking this tripod affords. As others have commented, the short height of the tripod makes for awkward polar alignment. However, I knew that when I bought the unit. � � Pro: Very solid construction Small and light enough to fit into a carry-on bag � Con: The threads are the wrong size for the SkyGuider Pro mount. It is easy enough to rethread the mount, but potential customers need to be aware of this slight thread mismatch when ordering the tripod for use with the SkyGuider Pro mount. (I may have misinterpreted the description, but it sure looks like they are supposed to work together)
