Telescope and spotting scope vibrations are caused by windy conditions, an unsteady mount or tripod, vehicles driving by, people walking by, or even an accidental bump to the instrument. This can potentially spoil both your observations and any photographic imaging. Celestron’s set of three Vibration Suppression Pads will reduce vibration time by almost 100% and decrease vibration amplitude. The pads fit between the bottom of the tripod legs and the ground, a simple and functional solution to the problem of image disturbance. They work on any surface: grass, dirt, concrete, asphalt, wood, etc., for both telescopes and spotting scopes.
As a photographer, I’m often doing long exposures of 30 seconds or more for night shoots. So when I’m shooting a seaside scene at night, vibration pads under the tripod are a relief when a large truck rumbles by on the road. Even when I’m doing exposures of less than a second, if I’m on a path with a lot of foot traffic and I’m using my tripod, it’s worth using.
