WO Megrez II 80 FD / APM 107mm f/6.5 / Mewlon 210 on DM-6 + Berlebach Planet
Quote:The UNI 9 or UNI 19 depending on height requirements.These are the least expensive model that have a geared central column.Personally as a more affordable solution (less than half the price of the Berlebachs) I'v been looking at a Wolf Static 8052. Haven't pulled the trigger yet though.
Quote:I'm curious, you always come back to models from the "astronomy" range which are made to fit Vixen GP style mounts. Do you have confirmation that the Giro 3 will fit on it?
Quote:Yes, but there's a range of Berlebach photo tripods where you have a whole range of Report and Uni models with a 3/8" screw (or optionally 1/4" or 5/8") which I'm sure fit the Giro mount. The models shown on the Teleskop Service website are the astro series which will IMO not fit your Giro mount. TS are however confirming that they can get these tripods with the correct adapter for the Giro mount, but actually then they'll be different tripod model numbers than the ones shown.You should really take a look at the Berlebach site.
Quote:I'm sorry for my confusion, it appears that not only do the Berlebach tripods come with a choice of "astro" connection or 3/8" connection, but also the Giro mount can be had in either version. So it doesn't matter either way, as long as the versions match.
