Avalon Instruments T110 Tripod

The new metal tripods by Avalon Instruments have been designed to revolutionize the world of portable astronomy with both the style and function that Avalon Instruments is known for. Made entirely from anodized aluminum with stainless steel hardware, the low weight and high stability of these tripods make them the ideal companion for travelling observers and astrophotographers.

The T-110 tripod has a 220 pound (100 Kg) capacity. Even with these substantial capacities, The T-110 weighs only 6.5 and collapses to just 30 inches (75 cm) while extending to a maximum height of 51 inches (130 cm).

The built-in spreader system allows the tripod to be quickly and easily opened with no loose parts while the double leg locks and included bubble level make it easy to level the tripod and securely lock it in place. The base of the legs can be fitted with ground spikes for soft ground or rubber tips for hard surfaces. In addition, the tripods are equipped with a convenient handle for easy transport.

While conceived for the Avalon M-Uno, Linear and upcoming M-Zero mounts, the T110 model is also compatible with other mounts including the SkyWatcher/Orion EQ6/Atlas and AZEQ6/Atlas Pro AZEQ-G, Celestron CGEM, Losmandy G11, Takahashi EM200, Vixen SXV/SXD/SXP/SXD2 and other mounts while the M-90 will be compatible with mounts including the SkyWatcher/Orion EQ-5/HEQ5/Sirius, Celestron CG-5/AVX, Takahashi EM10, Vixen GP/GPD2 and others.

Compatibility will be either native or through the use of an available adapter.
