Tripods for Your Optics

Viewing with a Stable Tripod

The key to using any high-powered binocular or spotting scope is its foundation—the tripod legs. Features to evaluate when selecting a tripod are height, weight, and sturdiness. Aluminum legs are traditional, but if cutting weight without sacrificing stability is a priority, carbon fiber is the optimal choice. Tripod kits include legs and a head. Different styles of heads offer low profile, pan tilt, sliding plate, or ball head designs.
