A lightweight and durable carbon tripod is best suited for the AXJ equatorial mount. It combines great portability with rigidness.
The ASG-CB90 is a compact and lightweight tripod designed primarily for using with an AXJ mount. Both high degree of durability and lightweightness were required for the ASG-CB90 tripod in order to make the most use of portability of the AXJ mount. Based on experience at developping our lightweight APP-TL130 tripod, strong and lightweight pipe legs made of carbon fiber have been adopted. Also, every movable part on the legs and the tripod head have been reviewed throughoutly for achieving a highly stable tripod for serious celestial observer with the AXJ mount.
The ASG-CB90 tripod is compatible with SX series of equatorial mounts, AP series of equatorial mounts, HF fork mount, PORTA II alt-azimuth mout and the SXG half pillar. It is available for the GP2 and GPD2 mounts also if they have a 45mm mount base for the standard Vixen tripod head.
The two-section tripod legs can be locked tightly or loosen quickly by turning the twist locks in hand.
The scale of 2.5cm increments marked on the tripod leg allows for confirming height and level of the tripod easily.
