Orion Paragon Professional Field Tripods

For anything more than casual use you need a tripod that's very stable, strong enough to withstand some serious abuse, and yet moves with fluid smoothness. Our Paragon professional tripods fill the bill, providing heavy-duty support for giant binoculars, cameras, spotting scopes, and scopes such as the Orion ShortTube 80 and 90 refractors and MAK-500. The Paragon HD-F2 tripod and the heavier-duty Paragon-Plus XHD are constructed almost exclusively of aluminum, making them stronger at key stress points where other tripods fail. They feature large, adjustable aluminum-tube legs with ridged helical locks. The legs are tri-braced to the center elevator housing for extra stability. Both tripods are tall when fully extended, putting binoculars easily at eye level for most people.

Both tripods come with the same two-way fluid-type pan head. It features tension adjustment knobs on both axes for wonderfully smooth, controlled motion. The pan head can be raised or lowered on its aluminum rack-and-pinion elevator post with a hinged hand crank. Panning is easy with the 11"-long adjustable handle. The quick-release 1/4"-20 dovetail shoe makes attaching and detaching your instrument from the pan head a snap. Other nice features include convertible cushion/spike feet and built-in bubble level.
