Very duty tripod available on it's own from the Celestron CG-5 mount kits. These are very sturdy tripods. These will fit the CG-5 mounts as well as a nice upgrade for the Skywatcher EQ5 mounts.

Terrific tripod!
Sunday, 25 December 2016  | 

Needed to replace the aluminum tripod that originally came with the NEQ3-2 mount as heavier telescopes mean that tripod isn't steady and tends to wobble. This can cause a big problem when using high magnification eyepieces as the image "shakes". So, looked around and came across this CG-5 tripod. Was uncertain at first considering I wanted to stay with SkyWatcher products but the 2-inch legs at this price made it hard to refuse. Purchased it, was told it was out of stock but would be in the next day (no problems with the speed of communication there) and Interlink delivery was great too.

The size of the tripod surprised me slightly as its legs spread over a larger area than I might have originally anticipated (approximately 75cm distance between adjacent legs when tripod legs are not extended) but the stability it provides is top notch, it really is. And the SkyWatcher mounts are compatible with the tripod too (up to and including NEQ5 mounts, I'm led to believe). I have nothing but praise for this incredibly sturdy tripod and its very respectable price point. Really pleased with the purchase and many thanks for the quality of RTOs customer service!
