Enjoy motion as smooth as silk with the Orion Tritech II Compact 3-Way Fluid Pan Head. Attach this stable pan head to a monopod or compact tripod for superior motion control. You'll be amazed at the precision and buttery smooth motion this tiny performer is capable of.

With three axes of rotation, the Tritech II Compact 3-Way Fluid Pan Head provides 360 of azimuth motion, 180 of altitude motion, and 90 of lateral tilt to attached instruments. A simple twist of the easy-grip pan handle adjusts altitude tension for fast and efficient performance. With a load capacity of up to 11 lbs., this smooth operator is an ideal match for spotting scopes, point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras, L-adapter equipped binoculars, and much more. This precise pan head is the perfect match for the pleasantly portable Orion Tritech II-M Pro Monopod (sold separately).

Made of rugged magnesium alloy with a built-in bubble level, the Orion Tritech II Compact 3-Way Fluid Pan Head features a 3/8" threaded socket with a removable "-20 insert to allow secure coupling to monopod or tripod assemblies. A nifty auto-locking QR-20 quick-release shoe with "-20 threaded post and D-ring makes attachment and detachment of cameras and other instruments fast and easy. 

Weighs just 11.5oz. Pan head only.
