Added the Vortex Pro GT due to the dependable weight hook at the bottom of its center column, so it's definitely a good option when having to use optics in very windy conditions. Also included the Ballachy Compact for its 3-way pan-and-tilt head mechanism, ensuring smooth maneuverability when surveying or hunting. The legs on the Celestron Regal Premium can be set to one of 3 different angles, while its spiked feet make it easy to place on uneven terrain. Both of these features will come in handy if the tool is used for observing wildlife. Also decided to include the Gosky Heavy-Duty due to its ergonomic handle, tension knob, and nonslip rubber materials. Finally, the legs on the Orion Paragon are equipped with both graduated markings for accurate length adjustments and 3 bracing points that connect to the stand's center column, ensuring superior stability at all times.
