This item is a Celestron Hummingbird Fast Pan-Tilt Head Tripod. The Hummingbird tripod is an excellent choice for those seeking a lightweight yet stable tripod to hold a spotting scope, binocular, or camera. With four leg sections and an adjustable center column, the tripod can be set in multiple configurations to get the exact height or stance needed for your terrain and conditions. Use the panning handle and tension knob to scan across the horizon in smooth motions and follow your subject if it is moving. The Hummingbird Tripod is the perfect tripod for your Hummingbird Spotting Scope, of course, but also for any outdoor observing, from bird watching to stargazing and everything else.
You will find that it's easy to attach a wide range of optical and photographic equipment to your Hummingbird tripod in seconds, with the mounting plate. This broad platform with protective padding areas is ideal for attaching binocular adapters, a spotting scope, camera gear, and more. This Hummingbird Pan Tilt Head Tripod also includes a handy soft case for storage and transportation of the tripod. To allow for various viewing conditions, the platform also tilts sideways to 90° with a lock knob to secure it in place.
The center column of the Hummingbird tripod can be extended to raise the tripod head when additional height is needed. To adjust the center column, twist the lock-knob and move the center column to the desired height. The maximum height when the tripod is fully extended is just under 69”. At the bottom of the center column, there is a ¼ - 20” mounting stud to attach a camera to achieve a unique low angle when viewing or imaging.
Each leg of the Hummingbird tripod can be set at two different fixed angles as well as a fully extended position. Each leg has a leg angle adjustment latch located at the top of the tripod leg, that allows you to lay the leg flat on a surface. There is a bubble level to ensure the tripod is level at any location setup. This leg design and the controls included allow you to set up your Hummingbird Tripod in many ways, even on terrain which is very uneven or has obstacles. This is a real plus when working in the field.
A protective soft Carrying Case is included with this Hummingbird Fast Pan-Tilt Head Tripod.
