Description


Telescope and spotting scope vibration can be caused by windy conditions, an unsteady mount, or a simple bump. Whatever the source, though, reduced image quality results. Celestron's set of three vibration suppression pads gets the shakes out. It'll reduce vibration time by almost 100 percent while decreasing vibration amplitude, and that translates into better image quality. The pads fit between the tripod's feet and the ground, providing a simple, functional vibration damper. They work on any surface: grass, dirt, concrete, asphalt, wood, etc., for both telescopes and spotting scopes. And they banish image bounce forever!
CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

    These actually surprised me and I was very impressed with the design. I was expecting just a rubber block, but these show some acoustic engineering was involved. The design mirrors the vibration isolation used on professional acoustic chambers. In this case, each pad consists of a hard outer shell with a couple of bumps for ground contact, and an inner concave shell for the tripod foot, separated by a very soft silicone absorber layer. The result is a product that does exactly what it says it will, and that should last as long as the silicone remains pliable (a pretty long time!).

    Works, but still a little vibration

    Bought to use on a scope for viewing on my deck. Removes most of the vibration, but still catch a bit. When on concrete, works great for stability and removes motions.

        Comments about Celestron Telescope and Spotting Scope Vibration Suppression Pads:

        Nice solid feel, but dampens vibration very well. I bought these pads when I bought my telescope.

        I tested the scope without the pads, and there was a good bit of vibration, especially during focusing. When I set the pads under my tripod, I saw a drastic reduction in the vibration when focusing.

        In my opinion, thes pads are a must for any tripod, whether you are using a telescope, binoculars, or a camera.

              I've used it once so far, and it appears to be working, but the problem is the quality of the items themselves was not very good. I'm debating to send it back or not, as the orange cup does not sit well and some of the parts are tighter than the others.

                Took these out for the first time in an area where the ground was hard, dry and unlevel. Using a fine focuser was difficult prior to getting these, as the scope was jiggling with even the lightest touch to the focuser. Following the instructions, leveled out the scope and set it up. All motion was suppressed to a great degree. Focusing was much easier. I'll have to admit I was sceptical that these would work as well as I wanted, but they have surpassed my expectations.

                  The Celestron Vibration Suppression Pads cut vibration time and amplitude of my scope in half. If your scope and mount has problems with vibration, this should be at the top of your list of fixes. Recommended product!

                  Customer Q & A

                  Q1: We have a Celestron 8 telescope, the older version, I was curious as to whether the suppression pads seen here were the correct ones for the bottom of our telescope. The diameter of our legs to the telescope is 2 inchs.

                  A: Yes teh suppression pads should work just fine for you.
