This is a Meade Deluxe Field Tripod designed to be used with Meade Telescopes. It is a very heavy duty tripod and can handle lots of different models of Meade Telescopes. It is in like new condition being used only a couple of times. The tripod is 34 1/2 inches when legs are retracted and fully extended measures 54 1/2 inches high. (Please look at the photos.) You will see a round plate suspended from the legs with holes in it. This plate is to store spare telescope eye pieces when in the field. The tripod was manufactured in China to design specifications provided by the Meade Corporation located in Irvine, California. Any parts or questions can be found on Meade's web site. The tripod's weight is 10 lbs thus I am planning to ship it FedEx unless the purchaser prefers another method and at the time of sale we can discuss alternate shipping methods. This tripod can be a very useful tool if you are into astronomy or thinking about getting in to it.
