Let's says the mount is 30kg, put 20kg of counterweight and 30 kg of equipment so 80kg. I won't put this load on a tripod of an EQ6. This is just a demo product as there is not a decent tripod to support such a load.


Sure there is...the same tripod Synta uses for their other big mount, the CGE Pro.
