Celestron 93493 reviews

Heavy Duty Tripod for CPC, Nextar GPS is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Tripod I bought this tripod for my Celestron NexStar 8SE. The attachment screws line up with the base but the center locating pin is to large to fit. To fix this you loosen the central column nut back out the column attach the scope screw the column in until it touches the scope base then tighten the nut. The tripod is very sturdy features a built in bubble level, captured scope attachment screws, a heavy accessory tray with 6 eyepiece holders and lower tripod links. It's well made and will fold up for storage with the accessory tray attached.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Tripod Picked this up for a 65-pound Celestron CPC 1100 fork-mounted 11 tube. Very solid. No comparison to what I see now was a pretty shaky wedge-pod on a 15 year old Celestar 8. Even without vibration suppressors, the vibration is very low. Collapses quickly and easily. Very convenient strap on one leg to wrap and hold the collapsed tripod for transporting. The CPC scope has a clever system for dropping onto the center of the tripod and quickly snapping into place to engage the spring-loaded finger-bolts. The built-in bubble-level makes initial setup a piece of cake. Best tripod I've used. Would get 5-stars is it only had a couple of holes to hold 2 eyepieces in the base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy Tripod I purchased this tripod to use with my Celestron C5+ telescope. The mounting holes in my C5+ wedge mount lined up with three of the holes in the top of this tripod and provides a very stable mount. The accessory tray allows for temporary storage of eyepieces that are not currently being used. The tripod is easy to set up and level but it is not one that you would want to carry to a remote location. Stability vs weight is usually a tradeoff and I'm happy with the performance of this tripod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty monster THe over all weight and build quality match what is needed to support the CPC scope. You can not beat the price and service from BHP.
