The Orion Paragon XHD Extra Heavy-Duty professional tripod is a very stable field tripod that moves with fluid smoothness. This Paragon XHD tripod can support giant astronomy spotting scopes, cameras, binoculars, and many compact telescopes like the Orion ShortTube 80 Refractor Telescope, Apex 90, 102 and 127 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescopes and more.

The Orion Paragon-Plus XHD Tripod is made up of exclusive aluminum, making it stronger at key stress points where other plastic tripods fail. For convenient setup and takedown, the Pargaon-Plus XHD Tripod features large, adjustable aluminum-tube legs with robust lock lever clamps. Each tripod leg features graduated reference etchings so you can quickly and easily extend each leg to the same preferred length which is a great timesaver when trying to set up gear in a hurry. Measuring 67" tall when fully extended, this Paragon XHD Tripod puts astronomical binoculars at an eye level for most observers.

The Orion Paragon XHD Tripod holds heavier loads than their HD-F2 Paragon tripod. Its tubular legs measure 1-1/4-inch maximum diameter and each leg is laterally braced with dual 3/4" aluminum tubes. The central elevator shaft is 1-1/8" diameter and features 11-3/4" of vertical travel. When fully extended the height of the tripod is 67" and it breaks down to a portable 34" weighing only 9 lbs.

The Orion XHD Paragon-Plus tripod comes with a two-way fluid-type pan head. For great smooth, controlled altazimuth motion the XHD Paragon Tripod features tension adjustment knobs on both axes. On its aluminum rack-and-pinion elevator post with a hinged hand crank the pan head can be raised or lowered. With the 11" long adjustable handle the panning is easy. The quick-release 1/4"-20 dovetail shoe makes attaching and detaching your instrument from the pan head a snap. Additional great features include convertible cushion/spike feet and built-in bubble level.
