365 Astronomy

The Fotomate VT-990-222R is an outstanding professional standard tripod for video cameras & DSLR’s, as well as for spotting scopes, small telescopes and most large observation binoculars.

Features a huge maximum payload capacity of 20kg and an impressive maximum height of 200cm.  

This tripod does not feature a geared centre column so the tripod offers greater rigidity and stability, and lends itself to carrying heavier equipment.

The superb included super heavy-duty 2-Way tripod head, is extremely robust and well-engineered.
