Refractor telescopes and cameras with long lenses will be less stable if they sit too far forward, so the ability to make adjustments to the balance point is a nice option. The Celestron Heavy-Duty Alt-Azimuth Tripod is really useful when you want to do hand's-free viewing through giant binoculars or a spotting scope. It is also a nice match for small to medium-sized telescopes, like the Celestron C90 or C5. The mounting bolt is free to slide along a slot cut in the mounting plate, allowing the user to adjust the forward and aft location of the telescope, spotting scope, binocular mount adapter, or camera.
The purpose here is to keep your equipment centered over the tripod as best you can. It can spin 360º with the lock disengaged. Small movements are best made by turning the slow motion control handles. They work great for following objects as they move across the night sky. Extendable aluminum tripod legs with heavy-duty mount head.
