Sorbothane Vibration Isolation Square Pad 4" x 4" - 2 Pack

Product Review (submitted on March 7, 2018):
I've used Sorbothane to minimize vibrations between my camera and Quadcopter with good results, so I thought I'd try it under the feet of my telescope tripod to minimize ground induced vibration. I found that using the round orange CELESTRON vibration suppression pads helped, but when I placed one of these square Sorbothane pads between the ground and the CELESTRON pads, that my telescope is ROCK STEADY - and any vibration that DOES make it through, only lasts 10ths of a second and is gone, rather than the constant vibration oscillation that used to make stars jiggle and wiggle.
If they get dirty or muddy, you can use soap and water to clean them as you would your hands. They do not retain any indents, and bounce back to their original shape, even after sitting under the tripod/pads for weeks at a time. They are a little expensive since you have to buy two sets to get 3 pads, but definitely help eliminate vibration and oscillation in a telescope or camera tripod,
