Questions & Answers

Product Questions

I have the Ioptron 3550. So I have tracking capability already. I don't require that option. Your tripod 10-8021acc seems better for me. However it is not a folding tripod. The IO-3400B does not state if it is folding. If it is can the tripod be purchased without the SkyTracker?
