Good for Heavy Spotting Scopes and Short People

Tim S., Eagle Optics
13 May 2013
  • Summary: This is my first tripod that I use for birding almost every day. I have had it for almost two years now. I started out with a straight Vortex Skyline 80 scope and now have a Celestron Regal 80 F-ED scope. The tripod is built well. I just recently started having problems with the short handle becoming worn out. It is definitely made for short people as it is perfect for me with the legs and head fully extended when using the straight Vortex Skyline 80.

Lightweight - good for airline travel

Marilyn, Eagle Optics
30 June 2012
  • Summary: Manfrotto makes a great tripod. I have my regular Manfrotto tripod that I've used for years, but it's a bit bulky and heavy for packing into a suitcase. This lightweight, compact version is an excellent alternative. I haven't put it to the test in the wind yet, but I suspect it will hold up to the job. Be sure your scope or camera has a new mounting plate - my old one does not fit securely.

Lightweight value tripod

John, Eagle Optics
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I wanted the lightest weight tripod I could find that was still serviceable. This is a good value. It mounts the Vortex Viper 15-45x60mm angled scope successfully. It might not handle larger scopes and is not really tall enough for a straight through scope. The leg extension lock levers seem overly tight. The center extension guide is kind of sloppy; but not a big deal I found it needs some easy fixes.

MK394-H Tripod with Three-way head

Karen, Eagle Optics
19 June 2012
  • Summary: This tripod was listed for photography, but I bought it for my spotting scope because it was lighter weight, less expensive, and could telescope into a smaller size than the other options. So far it has served me well in that capacity. Probably wouldn't do well in a strong wind, but birds are harder to find under those circumstances anyway. I received it quickly after ordering, and was totally satisfied with the process.

Lite Tripod

Sam, Eagle Optics
15 May 2012
  • Summary: The Manfrotto MK394-H is a nice alternative to the heavier tripods. I am using mine with a small spotting scope and this makes it easier to put in the back pack and take it along. Down side is that it uses a nonconvetional adaptor to attach to the head. In a wind it is not as stable as heavier tripods.

  • Excerpt: пока впечатления положительные. снизила оценку за следы на стойке и шайбу.устойчивый.чувствуется вещь в руках.хорошая добротная вещь.хороший чехол.похоже на непромокаемый материал.
  • Pros: лёгкий в меру.ноги можно поставить под разным наклоном.т.е в походных условиях–при неровностях почвы или упор ногой в стену.плавный ход головы.чехол.
  • Cons: оставляет чёрные полосы от центральной штанги или стойки..на съёмной площадке смущает неполная шайба или как её назвать..?при закручивании она ходит ходуном и создаёт ощущение её ненадёжности.возможно ошибаюсь.но при удобном случае–поищу запасную.

  • Excerpt: Купил за 2600, за эту цену просто подарок. Очень добротная штука, выдерживает большой вес. В комплекте идет удобный чехол. Качество Manfrotto неоспоримо, хоть и сделан он в Китае.
  • Pros: - Отсутствие люфтов - Надёжность - Простота
  • Cons: - Вес, если брать в походы
