Listen to what reviewers and customers are saying about our Garrett Tripod line:
Series 3000 Tripod
The much anticipated date finally arrived today.. the tripod was delivered in excellent condition and well worth the wait. I thought I had reviewed it closely.. but did not realize it came with a padded case.. nor did I imagine it would be so well dampened... the build quality is beyond my expectations and the quick release plate... again... a perfectly wonderful surprise. Once the 15 x 70 Signature Binocs were properly affixed, I was able to stand on my upper deck this afternoon and get a good look at Mt. Hood up close. I am about 50 miles from it, as the crow flies... even with the heat distortion I was able to see the lift house at the top of the Magic Mile and the bottom lift house at Palmer Glacier... Silcox hut is just over the horizon... this may make no sense whatsoever, but believe me, it’s impressive. Once the air cooled off, the mountain was basked in alpenglow... and the view was even more spectacular. The primary reason for the purchase is astronomical, however, as you have just read... We can also see Mt. Adams from our place... St. Helens is behind a line of trees, but a short walk up the street reveals all... in fact, we can even see the tip of Mt. Jefferson from our local grocery store parking lot... and if the days are really clear, and you are in the right location… we can see Mt. Rainer. I am leaving for the south side of St. Helens tomorrow... Swift Forest Camp... and you can bet these are coming along for the ride… nice dark skies up there. [We] will be in Mendocino on the CA coast in a few weeks... again... these are going along for the ride.

I just received my Series 3000 tripod, and my first impression is excellent. It is vastly superior to my old camera tripod in many ways, most importantly stability and maximum height. I'm very much looking forward to having a stable image without serious neck strain. [...] Also, thanks for the impressive level of detail in updates regarding the shipping process, I appreciate it.
Series 5000 Tripod
Series 5000 tripod was received in good order! Actually, I wasn't
expecting a case, let alone a quality padded one! So, for me this was a
bonus! Everything matched well ... the 5000 is a perfect fit. It truly
has enhanced the viewing experience. A colleague of mine, long time sky
watcher, and astronomy instructor, related to me that "the GT100-45
binocular telescope is the best instrument he's experienced for viewing
large portions of the night sky." That's high praise from someone who's
been stargazing for 50 years!... Thanks for your fine products and
