Telescopes are expensive, so its worth making sure they are securely attached.BBC Sky At Night MagazineMaximum Height (fully extended): 180cm Minimum Height (retracted): 78cm Quick-Adjust Vertical Tension Geared 31cm Centre Column with Lock & Brace 360° Panning, -90° to +60° Vertical Adjustment 3-Section Heavy-Duty Tubular Aluminium Legs Bubble-Level for Accurate Levelling Heavy-Duty Twist-Type Leg-Locks with Rubber Grips Self-Levelling Rubber Feet with Screw-out Metal Spikes Weight 3.58kg
