The legs of the Celestron AstroMaster AZ Tripod are fully adjustable to best match the height you require. The minimum height of the tripod is 24 inches, and the maximum height is 41 inches. Spreader bars lock into place when the legs are opened, and a handy accessory tray pops into the center of the brace.
The alt-azimuth pan head is great for taking videos or following a moving target due to its smooth, continuous movement capabilities. It can also be locked in place (or loosened) by turning the pan handle and azimuth lock. Telescopes and spotting scopes with 1.75 dovetail bars will fit right inside the clamp on top of the tripod. Optics or cameras requiring a ¼-20 threaded bolt can attach using the included dovetail bar adapter. An optional tripod binocular adapter with binoculars attached can also connect to the dovetail bracket, then simply slide the plate into the tripod head and lock it into place.
Mount Height (Max) 41 in (1041 mm)
Mount Height (Min) 24 in (610 mm)
Not happy with this tripod! I bought the Astromaster tripod for my C90 telescope after reading all the reviews MISTAKE! FAULT 1: After opening the box I noticed the head was almost locked solid. I had to slacken the centre bolt just to get it to pan left and right and what a job that was. The alien key bolt was in so tight I had to use a wrench on it. (NOT A GOOD START!) FAULT 2: Once I slackened the bolt the head developed a wobbled; the cause was the baring was smaller than the housing. That’s probably why the bolt was in so tight in the first place. The only answer was to slip in a thin tubular shim to take up the slack. Good job I’m a handy guy, I just happened to have one in my workshop so I slipped it in and fixed it. FAULT 3: I also noticed there is an issue with the locking bolt and the locking handle. The bolt catches if it isn’t unscrewed all the way and you have to turn the handle about five time to get it to lock resulting in lot of vibration. I have used quite a few times now and over all I feel I have wasted £69.50. The Astromaster just hasn’t delivered the smoothness in movement I was looking for. It is only marginally better than the £25 tripod it replaced and I didn’t have to fix that one! (13/04/2016) Roy - Haverhill
