Item #  21321

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. Orion's Paragon professional tripods fill the bill, providing heavy-duty support for giant binoculars, cameras, spotting scopes, and telescopes such as the Orion ShortTube 80, Orion Apex 90, 102 and 127, Orion GrandView, Orion Arcadia, and Orion Resolux and Orion GiantView binoculars.

The Paragon-Plus XHD tripod is constructed almost exclusively of aluminum, making it stronger at key stress points where other tripods fail. It features large, adjustable aluminum-tube legs with ridged helical locks. The legs are tri-braced to the center elevator housing for extra stability. The tripod is tall when fully extended, putting binoculars easily at eye level for most people.

This extra heavy-duty tripod holds heavier loads. Tube legs 1-1/4" max. dia.; each leg laterally braced with dual 3/4" aluminum tubes. Elevator shaft 1-1/8" dia., 11-3/4" travel. Height fully extended 67"; folds to 34". Weighs 9 lbs.

The Orion Paragon-Plus XHD tripod comes with a 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. This Orion model comes with its own case.
