This tripod is sturdy enough to hold a small to medium refractor reasonably steady, and is easy to use. It compares favorably with similar but higher priced models of other brands that I have used.
I purchased this item to do some digiscoping with my Newtonian telescope. The adapter is well designed with adjustments for setting up both camera and eyepiece. The only limiting factor is that the camera must have a lens length under 1.75 inches. Other wise there is not enough clearance to the eyepiece. Also due to the fact that the adapter clamps around the eyepiece only larger oculars( 25-32mm) can be used for afocal photography. The adapter is well made of mostly metal construction.
