Best Vibration Suppression Pads
Vibration suppression pads are a relatively cheap way of solving a big problem: Telescope mount vibration.For some of us, the vibrations can be so bad that our using the telescope becomes a frustrating experience.
If a small twist of the focuser or nudge of the gears has the image in your eyepiece wobbling like a jelly, then you need a solution so you can enjoy using your telescope once again. Thankfully, you don’t have to go down the expensive route of a new (and expensive), sturdier mount. No, a low-cost set of vibration suppression pads for your telescope mount will almost certainly have a substantial positive impact.
However, the challenge you face is deciding which are the best vibration suppression pads for astronomy, so that you make an informed choice.
Celestron Vibration Suppression Pads
Telescope and spotting scope vibrations are caused by windy conditions, unsteady mounts/tripod or accidental bumps to the instrument, and result in reduced image quality whether observing or photographing. Celestron’s set of three Vibration Suppression Pads reduce the time the scope resonates with vibration by nearly 100%, and also decrease the amplitude of the vibrations.
To make the notion simpler to understand, imagine two identical scope setups adjacent to one another with both having a laser pointer affixed at a wall some distance away from the scopes. Were you to influence both scopes with an identical vibration-causing shock, the laser beam originating from the scope with the Celestron Vibration Suppression Pads underneath would both move a shorter distance upon the wall and come to rest much quicker than the beam originating from the scope without the device installed. They really work!
The pads fit between the bottom of the tripod legs and the ground, a simple and functional solution to the problem of image disturbance. They work on most any surface: grass, dirt, concrete, asphalt & wood. Suitable for both telescopes and spotting scopes.
