Crafted with durability and functionality in mind, this kit comprises a robust 26mm aluminium tripod and a single-handled 2-way pan head, enabling you to have complete control over movements while keeping your other hand free to adjust zoom, focus, or trigger the shutter.

The VEO PH-28 2-Way Pan-Head boasts a telescopic, textured handle for a secure grip, even in adverse weather conditions. With its innovative design, it supports a maximum load capacity of up to 5kg/11lbs, ensuring stability and reliability in every shot. The Arca Swiss compatible quick release system facilitates seamless attachment and detachment of your equipment. Weighing just 515g, it's lightweight and portable, perfect for on-the-go shooting.

The tripod itself features 3-sections of 26mm diameter legs, equipped with solid flip locks for quick and easy setup. A low angle adaptor in the base of the central column expands your shooting possibilities, while the retractable hook provides stability by allowing you to add additional weight. For enhanced grip outdoors, spiked feet (included) can be effortlessly attached.

Compact yet versatile, this kit folds down to 610mm/24 inches, making it easy to transport wherever your adventures take you. Extending up to 1600mm/63 inches, it offers ample height for various angles. Despite its robust build, it weighs just 1925g/4.2lbs, ensuring minimal strain during extended use.

Compatible with a range of spotting scopes, the Vanguard VEO 2Pro 263AO is the perfect partner for the Endeavor HD 82A Spotting Scope, as well as any other spotting scope with an Arca Swiss compatible base plate. Say goodbye to cumbersome quick release plates—simply slot your equipment into the head and you're ready to capture stunning images and videos.


Vanguard's VEO 2PRO 263AO 3-section aluminium tripod with 360° degree VEO 2 PH-28 2-way pan head is the perfect choice for larger spotting scopes, binoculars* and outdoor photography/videography with a mirrorless/DSLR camera. It is guaranteed to provide the stability, durability and reliability needed in the field for sporting optics or cameras.

The 26mm diameter aluminium alloy legs have settings for 20°, 45° and 80° leg angles, with easy-release buttons for quick set-up, and a free low angle adaptor included. This solid (1.9kg/4.2lbs) tripod collapses to 61cm/24” and can be extended up to 1600cm/63”, while supporting up to 5kg/11lbs.

The VEO 2 PH-28 2-way pan head is made of lightweight aluminium alloy. It can be rotated 360°, and tilted -60° backwards or 90° forwards, with complete control using just one hand. These two movements function simultaneously, and both the rotation and tilt can be set in place using the pan bar's integrated twist lock.

The kit includes an extra long Arca Swiss quick shoe that offers a double security feature and helps to prevent your camera or other equipment from accidentally falling when it is being adjusted.

A sturdy magnesium die-cast canopy, quick-flip leg locks, non-slip spiked or rubber feet, a removable hook for hanging camera accessories or a stabilising weight, 2 Allen wrenches, 3/8'' screw adaptor and carrying bag make this a fantastic kit.

*The Vanguard BA-185 binocular adaptor can be purchased separately.
