Oberwerk 5000 Series Tripod


The least-expensive tripod that can handle up to 24 lbs. Includes a crank-up elevator for easy height adjustment. Includes padded case.  Perfect for use with the Farpoint UBM parallelogram mount.

The Oberwerk 5000 Series tripod is the best value on the market for a heavy-duty tripod for binocular astronomy. Comparable to the much more expensive Manfrotto 475B tripod, it has a high load capacity (up to 24 lbs.) and even greater maximum height (7 feet!)- plenty of height to allow standing underneath a binocular when it is pointed up at the night sky. Tripod construction is black-anodized aluminum, with a total weight of 11 lbs.   Also included is a padded carrying case.

This tripod is ideal for use with the Farpoint UBM parallelogram mount.
