Quality mounting solution, good construction quality. Rated at 5kg load capacity for a lightweight tripod but 9kg for a "heavy duty" tripod. So far, I've only mounted a light refractor on it, but no reason to doubt the specs. Attitude adjustment using the two knobs is smooth. Good price from Tring Astro."
