Every photography enthusiast knows the importance of a sturdy tripod in taking non-handheld shots. A tripod is a basic necessity in astrophotography, particularly in taking wide-field photos of constellations, the moon, the sun (sunrise/sunset), meteors, conjunctions, flares (flyby), star trails, and even the Milky Way. Since I already have a heavy-duty tripod for my telescope which I can always use with my DSLR camera, I have no wish to acquire another large and therefore bulky tripod, an unnecessary duplication of equipment.
