Milan Karakas's opinion
Results of the first test
Aluminium tripod for EQ3
Excellent build quality. With triangular try attached, it is really stable. Mounting my EQ3 is easy and stable. So far, unable to test stability outdoor due to bad weather. But so far it feels so rigid and stable.
Good and lightweight. Easy to manipulate. Recommended!
