Slik Tripods

Slik are the best tripods we have used in conjunction with spotting scopes and large binoculars, this tripod/head combination has a maximum load of 13lbs (6Kg).

The Slik D3 Master Classic has a multi-action head, which enables the user to move the head both horizontally and vertically by just loosening the handle, we have found this method the best available for both aviation enthusiasts and bird watchers.

Everyone who looks and feels this tripod seems to like it, at some of the shows we do, it sometimes gets more attention than the scopes on top of it!

I have an TBG100 scope, will this tripod be suitable?

Yes, the Slik D3 tripod should be fine for a 100mm Optolyth scope.

If you are close to Lincoln, bring your scope and try it on one.

Weight wise, the Slik D3 should be fine, the manufacturers say it can take 6Kg.

I have not tried a pair of the big Helios binoculars on one, so can not comment how well the binoculars balance with this tripod. If you are close to Lincoln, feel free to bring your binoculars and try it, we currently have the tripods available from stock.

The head can be removed (it just unscrews), this leaves a standard tripod thread on top of the legs, which will accept most other heads.

The Slik D3 tripods can only be purchased as a full tripod (legs+head)
