Very good tripod I am writing this after over two years of using this really good tripod. It was a very hard decision buy it or not because I wanted put on it the Celestron C8. It turned out to fit without a problem and is an enough stable. I am very happy. The mount is very solid and everything works well. Service (16/05/2020) Piotr - Airdrie.
Excellent purchase. Ordered the tripod from Harrisons Telescopes and received it the next day. The mount is very robust and very easy to assemble. The gears are very smooth and the locking levers works well. Very very happy with the tripod and the brilliant service from Harrisons. (29/09/2017) Harry - Cambridge
Beautiful piece of astronomical kit This is a really superb instrument, beautifully crafted and very solid, I love the fact that it can be setup for either right or left handed people. The covering instructions are extremely clear and concise making it quick to assemble straight from the box. Superb service from Harrison. (29/09/2017) Chris Brown - Lowestoft Suffolk
