Maximum payload capacity of 90 kg (200 lb.) Flexible 360-degree azimuth adjustment for worry free setups and azimuth alignment. Allows eyepiece placement at a convenient height with a dynamic height range for 60 cm (24 in.) to 102 cm (40 in.) Large range of coarse level adjusters can applicable to flat or sloping surfaces. The ultra-portable and lightweight design tips the scales at just 6.4 kg (14 lb.) Fine adjusters to achieve optimal level. Simple and intelligent engineering permit the legs to be expanded or collapsed in seconds. Two built-in bubble levels for coarse leveling (with 10 arcminutes per one-tenth inch accuracy). Intelligent overall design produces exceptional stability at all heights. Swiveling feet can be fit with spikes to optimize coupling to software ground and are compatible with other commercially available tripod feet.
The Helium™ tripod is designed for maximum stability, portability and height adjustability. All parts are precision CNC manufactured from 6061 aluminum and produce exceptional rigidity at a relatively low weight. The Helium™ telescope mounting plate optionally accepts the Paramount MYT or the Paramount MX/MX+ mount (separate mounting plates are available for either or both models). Mounting plates for other mount models are planned. These features produce the ideal portable imaging platform that can be quickly setup, leveled and aligned with the celestial pole.
