Manual Line of Sight

Long range observation depends critically on stable, precise control of line of sight. Depending on the manual observation need, Instro covers a range operating heights, weights and payload capacities – whether with a Meerkat Family tripod or a Pan and Tilt or Goniometer fitted separately to an Instro lightweight military tripod.

For Forward Observers tracking distant targets moving at speed, manually holding line of sight on the subject can be challenging. For these situations, Instro's viscous damped Mini PT is the solution of choice - giving users smooth, precise pan and tilt action as well as fine adjustment.
