Swarovski CT Travel Carbon Tripod with DH 101 Head
When planning an outdoor adventure, we concern ourselves with variables: timing, destination, equipment, and everything in between. We scour the weather forecast. Make a checklist. Add this sweet Swarovski travel tripod kit to your list's optics column, and there will be one less uncertainty; one less worry.
This tripod kit could easily be nicknamed "Ready, Set, Go," considering how simple it is to pack along, carry, set up, and use. Carbon fiber and basalt construction makes the CT Travel Carbon Tripod so lightweight, sturdy and dependable, you won't dream of leaving your scope at home or in the car. Hand-friendly lever locks allow you to quickly extend and close the 4 sections. It folds down to a tidy package under 20" in length, small enough to pack in your trunk or hand luggage, yet will extend to a viewing height of just under 67", taller than you'd expect for a "travel-sized" tripod.
The DH 101 Tripod Head has a pleasing smooth and fluid-moving mechanism. The tilt and pan movements can be adjusted and set individually, and there is an integrated leveler for ease in setting the tripod on uneven terrain. You can attach your scope one-handed, no problem; the positional stability prevents even the smallest movements and is perfect for observing or digiscoping.
Comfort, ease of use, and impeccable construction details typify Swarovski's thoughtful workmanship. Swarovski makes outdoor adventure easy. You will need to pack your own lunch, though!
