Not in stock

Price includes VAT, plus delivery

The Planet tripod with K70 geared column allows easy height adjustment for loads up to 60 kg. Thanks to the geared column (Ø 70mm), large binoculars and mounts can have their height easily and safely adjusted by up to 35cm.

The columns crank handle can be removed for transport. The crank is removed from the gearbox with a slight pressure of the thumb on the central cover cap. No tools are needed.

The Planet tripod, characterized by large wooden cross-sections and innovative clamping elements, has a high load-bearing capacity and outstanding stability. Its wooden construction provides excellent damping. The 105mm wide tripod leg connection provides extreme torsional rigidity.

The spread angle of the legs is 24° using the standard spreader.
As standard the Planet with K70 geared column is supplied with a spreader bar and accessory tray. The head provides a 3/8" screw fixing. Optionally, the following other heads are available;
Thread Connection M10 X 14mm
