The VEO 3 264AO is a portable carbon fibre tripod that is designed for birdwatchers or nature lovers, delivering a solid base for their spotting scopes. This includes a VEO PH-28 Arca compatible 2-way pan head which has all the control in a single telescopic handle, allowing maximum control in following birdlife on the move, then locking down when stationary, always leaving one hand free to operate the zoom and focus for the best results.

     Weighs 2.1kg with an 8kg load capacity
     Extends to 155cm and folds to 58cm
     Noise-free and easy clean twist lock leg adjustments
     Tripod leg converts to a monopod in 3 easy steps
     Rubber/spiked feet

The VEO 3 264AO is a full sized carbon fibre tripod that is designed to deliver a stable base for even the most expensive spotting scope at maximum zoom, but be easier to carry around than the 3-section model when folded.

On top of the tripod is a VEO PH-28 2-way pan head with a single telescopic handle that controls the movement. When loosened, it allows you to follow a bird in flight with ease, and simply turning the handle allows you to lock it in place when the bird has landed. Alternatively you can alter the friction with the handle to increase the drag for maximum control. All this while keeping a hand free to adjust the focus or zoom of your spotting scope.

The quick release system is also Arca compatible, so it allows you to attach any spotting scope with an Arca compatible foot (including VEO spotting scopes and Endeavor spotting scopes) directly to the head without the need for a quick release plate, maximising the stability for observation. For those without an Arca compatible foot, it includes an extra large quick release plate with a spring locating pin for any spotting scope to be mounted to.

Perfect for most birdwatchers with an angled spotting scope, this tripod extends to 155cm, or 122cm with the central column down, but folds to 58cm when you need to travel.

The 4-section, 26mm diameter legs incorporate silent twist leg locks that won't startle any wildlife when you are setting up. They are also designed to be easy to clean, allowing you to maximise the life of your tripod.

For added stability, there is a retractable hook to attach additional weight, and the rubber feet come off to allow the spiked feet provided to be attached.

For observing or photography from a low angle, the tripod comes with three easy-set leg angles (20°, 50° and 80°) and a low angle adaptor. Alternatively, simply reverse the central column and you're ready to go.

On the side of the central canopy spider are two 3/8" threads for tripod support arms, allowing you to attach the accessories of your choice. These threads include bayonet slots on either side that ensure maximum stability on tripod support arms with that feature, such as the VEO TSA DLX which has a reversible plate for bayonet/non-bayonet fittings.

If you don't need the full tripod, then simply remove a leg, attach it to the central column and you have a monopod that extends to 158cm.

Manufactured with CNC technology using aircraft grade aluminium for load bearing parts ensures outstanding quality, and for maintenance, the easy clean twist locks can be fully unscrewed, allowing you to clean the leg locks after use for maximum longevity.

This combination of head and legs delivers the perfect base for observation or digiscoping.
