Omegon PD80 tripod pan-head

See in every direction - for a panoramic view

Whether wearing gloves in the icy cold or in summer at a blistering 35°C - The control handle means you will always have the pan-head under control. It can be rotated 360° and tilted up to the zenith; making your birdwatching, nature-watching and astronomy a pleasure.

Quick-release plate - attach or remove your instrument in a jiffy

The 80x50mm plate serves as a receiver for a camera, binoculars or spotting scope. The standardized ¼" screw fits directly to the instrument. When you hear the click, then you know all is well and secure! That is because once you push the plate onto your panoramic head, a pin on the plate engages to prevent your instrument from falling out. A locking screw on the side fixes the optics in place for your observing session.

When it has to be precise - panoramic landscapes

A fantastic day out in the countryside in bright sunshine or at a particularly impressive location - sometimes, there is a perfect opportunity for taking a panoramic image.

The PD80 offers all the requirements for taking the perfect photo:

  • level for a straight horizon
  • adjust the removable plate to find the optimal pivot point (nodal point)
  • 360° azimuth scale for ensuring regular intervals for the individual exposures

  1. The tripod head is not only extremely practical, but also of high-quality workmanship and has a unique design.
  2. The advantages in a nutshell:

  • stable pan-head - ideal for larger instruments
  • up to 10kg load capacity (depending on the length of the instrument)
  • high-grip handle for quick adjustment of the subject
  • 3/8" thread for a tripod receiver
  • two spirit levels for precise alignment

( 5 / 5 )

For my book on basic astrophotography I purchased an Omegon 3-way-pan-head Pro PD80 tripod pan-head from astroshop.de. My order was processed and shipped very quickly. The package arrived and was well packed.

A 3-way-panhead is necessary for using the “Omegon Mini Track LX2” tracking mount (also available through astroshop.de) that I selected for use in my book. The Omegon 3-way pan-head is well made and designed. The handles for the two axes are a joy to use and the 10kg payload is a plus.

The pan-head readily attaches to my carbon fiber tripod mounting screw and locks down flush and tight. The pan-head can readily adjust and lock down using the handles. There was no slippage when attaching the LX2.

I will be doing a separate review on the LX2.
