5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings


A very capable tripod and head at a very affordable price. The 3000 Series is rated for up to 9 lbs. All-aluminum head and quick-release plate. Perfect for binoculars up to 80mm.


The Oberwerk 3000 Series tripod and head combo is the best value on the market for a medium-duty tripod for binocular astronomy. Comparable to the much more expensive Manfrotto 055XDB tripod/128RC head, it has a similar load capacity (up to 9 lbs.) and even greater maximum height (78″)- enough height to allow standing underneath a binocular when it is pointed up at the night sky. Tripod construction is black-anodized aluminum, the pan head is cast aluminum, with a total weight of 8 lbs. The pan head includes two quick release plates and panning handle. Also included is a padded carrying case.

This tripod/head combo is ideal for all Oberwerk binoculars up to the 20×80 Deluxe III. For larger/heavier binoculars, choose the 5000 Series Tripod/Head.

  • Sturdy 3-section tubular aluminum legs with quick-flip locks.
  • All-aluminum panning head provides smooth azimuth and altitude motion.
  • Altitude bearing tension adjusted by a twist of the panning handle.
  • Two aluminum 1/4-20 quick-release plates for easy attachment/removal of binoculars, cameras, etc.
  • Elevator column with screw clamp for easy height adjustments.
  • Maximum Height: 78″.
  • Maximum Weight Capacity: 9 lbs.
  • Collapsed Length: 33″
  • Weight: 8 lbs.

    I purchased the 3000 tripod in 2015. It represents great value. I have used it to mount binoculars and a digital camera with extended telephoto lens – very solid, reliable, adjustable, and portable with its carry bag. Happy customer.

    A very affordable and capable tripod for the 20×80 binos. Like the Oberwerk pistol-grip monopod, very solid, adjustable and tall enough to view astronomy straight up in the sky.
