Question about Celestron Photography

1 Answer

I just bought second hand a celestrton nextar 5 se and when i try to extend the tripod one hole leg came off.The seller does not belive me but I think is just a dishonest person because the leg is so loose that is impossible he did not know about it.Basically the first section of the trypod, the one bolted to the round support is fine, but the second section with the plastic joiner came off, the plastic joiner should stay firmly in place attached to the first section but is so loose that drops off,Hope i explained mysel enought, I just would like to know if and where I can buy a replacement leg (or a whole tripod) I leave in Perth Western Australia.Many thanks Rob

I was in Perth in the mid 1980's and thought it was beautiful.I was in US Navy.Anyhow,if the last site doesn't work for you,all I did was google tripods in Australia.Probably much cheaper to ship.Good luck and G'day mate!

Can I get parts for a damaged tripod


Contact the importer or manufacturer, telling them the exact make and model number, plus a full description of the problem, with photos if possible. Alternatively, take it to a nearby camera shop or repair facility.

Vivitar tripod V900 has a broken friction level


Vivitar has been out of the tripod business for a few years now. They may no longer have the parts. You may be able to find another V900 and scavage the parts. Make sure the model numbers match exactly. The V900SE is a different year and does not share the same parts as the V900.

Can't figure out how to straighten and level the camera


if you have lost a srew or wing nut, it will be loose where there should be one. set it up and then try to raise or move it around in one spot. iof it moves than look for a screw hole. the handle itself sets the rotation try unloosing the handle..

The leg is slightly off the track, which is a curved piece which fits along the tripod support rail. If you're not careful when collapsing the legs you'll force the leg to go off-track like this.

I had a Porter-Cable that I was able to repair using three small pieces of lexan and a bandsaw. I took off one of the latches that were good and traced the pattern on the lexan and sawed out the handles. Cleaned them up with sandpaper andthen stacked them and drilled out the holes. Then I drilled two more holes for clearance for two 6-32 machine screws and nuts. Put the whole thing together and installed it - still working after four years.

One Leg has loss it's grip.


take it apart, there is a rubber ring like a belt or rubber band, either broken or missing. you will have to find a relacement for that, may have to take apart another leg to have one to compare, course I don't honestly know where you will find that piece. too take it apart just keep spinning the lock counterclockwise until it comes off. good luck.
