First Berlebach product and definitely not the last. Report 312 Tripod in Titanium grey. It is lovely. Unlike the scuffed attic floor.

Another Planet, AZ100 and 2 4" fracs, the APm is a 107 - FPL53's ok4 me

Desperate times eh Jeremy 🤣🤣 Lovely setup your have there. Here is the AZ100 on another Planet, not literally I might add 🤪. Best tripod I’ve owned, really stable and lovely to look at too!

My Planet, a Uni 8 and a Report for more lightweight duty. (Plus an extra un-pictured Uni 18 for my EQM-35). The Berlebachs make the difference between the stuff being allowed to live inside and "on v

Hi,

Which Berlebach tripod do you think would be ideal for an AZEQ6 with a TS Photoline 125mm. Would the UNI28 model be enough or would we have to go for the Planet model directly? By the way, would someone be so kind as to tell me the width and thickness of the legs, both on the Planet model and on the UNI28?
Thanks

While the UNI is fine and had very little vibration I have say I found there was zero vibration with the Planet. I thought the UNI was solid until I got the Planet.

The Planet legs are 125mm wide by 35mm thick.

The Uni 28 legs are 72mm wide by 35mm thick.

I have double clamps on mine, which probably helps with rigidity, as it feels very solid, although I would say that my iOptron Tri Pier (which is rated for higher load), feels like it’s concreted into the floor and I suspect the Planet is the same 👍

Having used both I’d say the planet is by far the better of the two and to be honest it’s not that much heavier to move around in my option

With that combination of mount and scope you can probably justify the Planet, especially as it will not be a very portable set up. UNI are very good if you are trying to keep a set up more portable/transportsble.

IE they are both good tripods for the job they are made for, as with Report too I hear.

Good to hear that the iOptron Tri-Pier is nice and solid. I've been deliberating between a Planet and a Tri-Pier for my setup.

I've already got a Uni 18 configured for an AZ Pro so have ordered an adaptor so that I can attach the AZ100 when I finally click buy.

However, although I desperately want a Planet, because I intend to leave the AZ100 permanently setup in the garden I'll eventually get a Tri-Pier as I don't think I could bring myself to leave a beautiful Planet tripod set up permanently outside even if it was protected.

To go with the picture (on page 3) of my Uni 18, i recently purchased a second hand, but very nice Planet.

It needed a different top plate but Berlebach happily obliged in only 2 or 3 days.

Here it is doing a solar session with my 105mm APM + DM4 lightweight mount.

I'm very impressed with the stability of the planet.

Here's my small contribution to this thread, my one and only (so far) Berlebach product. It's in the classifieds, if anyone's interested.

I guess I could fit some handles and use it for tea and biccies😄

Is that the More Blue Carbon Fibre Half Pillar?  It looks great with that grey Report - I think I need one :)

It’s a beauty, Roy. Handles would be a great addition, naturally, as we love handles on SGL

oops did someone mention love handles? Mods!!

Yes it is. Can cope with 15kg apparently, so manages quite well with the StellaMira.
