The aluminium telescopic tripod legs can be extended and clamped in any position using the integral leg locks. Supplied with two flexible slow-motion cables, one for vertical and one for horizontal smooth fine motion control.  The mount can also be moved manually around each axis, for rapid panning and elevation adjustments.
