1.25-in tripod for skyguider from iOptron that fits the iOptron SkyGuider Pro, iPANO, SkyTracker/SkyTracker Pro, SmartEQ /Pro and SmartStar/Cube mount. Investing in a tripod is a great idea for photography in general, but are especially for important for astrophotography. Without a 1.25-in tripod, your attempts to capture the night sky could result in blurry, noisy, and generally low-quality images. A stable tripod can transform this and take your photos to the next level.
For maximum strength and stability, most photographic tripods like the 1.25-in Tripod for SkyGuider are braced around a center post, with collapsible telescoping legs and a telescoping section at the top that can be raised or lowered. At the top of the tripod is the head, which includes the camera mount (usually a detachable plate with a thumbscrew to hold on to the camera), several joints to allow the camera to pan, rotate and tilt, and usually a handle to allow the operator to do so without jostling the camera. Some tripods also feature integrated remote controls to control a camcorder or camera, though these are usually proprietary to the company that built the camera.
This product is perfectly suited for the SkyGuider Pro series, with the polarscope or iPolar versions.
