This is our most massive and stable tripod to date. It is made for the new style M150 mount, the former M150 with adapter or for Losmandy mounts. It is not designed for use with the M2. We think this is the most stable wooden tripod on the market. Using over-sized Cherry hardwood, the large legs attach to an aluminum column. The M150 mount head or Losmandy heads will fit directly to the column. Other mounts can attach to the column with the proper adapters. The tripod is easy to set up, merely open and lock the legs, extend the legs as needed, attach the mount head and observe!
This pier tripod premiered at NEAF on April 12. It is available for purchase now but will take 30 - 60 days to build. These tripods are individually made for the buyer. This tripod will hold our SV160 when using our M150 or the Losmandy G11. Made in our shop the USA.
