Good day James,


Explore Scientific does offer more tripod options:


I felt the same way in the beginning, but after about a year and half, I realized I was not going to break it.   

Every time I image, I travel up and down a couple of flights of stairs.


I eventually went with the ST3 mount, which supports my iEXOS-100 mount, around 20-pounds of

counterweight and a 7” Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope.

I was just wondering if there was a better tripod that supports the iEXOS-100 mount. The legs are a bit flimsy and I'm concerned it will nit last long. I have to move it around a lot as I have to go off site to set it up.
