....Extends to an impressive height....The tripod remains stable even when extended, due to a bracket that locked the legs into place.....We especially liked the way in which the adaptor plate was fitted into the mount, which is held in place by a sprung locking mechanism. Telescopes are expensive, so it's worth making sure they are securely attached......
