The UNI 28 Tripod from Berlebach is a telescope support designed for the Vixen Sphinx mount. Constructed from solid ash wood, the tripod features an improved resistance to vibration and enhanced dampening.
As a member of the UNI series, the UNI 28 has been designed with a set of versatile stop-less leg locks which allow each leg to be set at any angle from 0° to approximately 100°. This action is accomplished via ratcheting handles which are located at the top of each leg next to the tripod's collar. The integrated steel chain can limit the leg spread depending on its set position, but this is a necessary trade-off for increased stability in some situations.
Although the capacity of the tripod may vary depending on the angles set for each leg, the load capacity of 110 lb was measured while each leg was set at approximately 20°. Additionally, the UNI 28 is capable of standing at a maximum height of 64" and, with the legs set to their widest angle, may be lowered to a minimum height of 39".
As a dedicated telescope support, the UNI 28 has been fitted with base compatible with the Vixen Sphinx mount and has been designed specificall for telescope use. An attachable accessory tray has been included to hold accessories such as telescope components, star guides and more. It should be noted that when the tray is attached the maximum angle of inclination achievable is 23°.
When folded, the UNI 28 collapses down to 43" for storage and weighs just 19.8 lb, making it easy to carry over short distances. The tripod also features durable spiked feet and an integrated bubble level.
