DS tripod base with an adapter plate( 3/4" plywood, unfinished) for ETX 60/70/80/90. Strong leg locks, no cracks, good foot pads, includes eyepiece tray, the black tripod is 24 1/2" collapsed/38 1/2" tall, the wood adapter plate is about 7 1/2" wide. Tripod can be used with a DS GoTo Black/Blue Ring mount, an ETX telescope or an Edmond's Astroscan/Bushnell telescope. The telescopes in the pictures are not included. In some photos the adapter plate appears to be off set but it is not, it is concentric. The eyepiece trays are DS factory original. The listing is for the black colored tripods. Price is for one tripod. The pictures are an example of all the tripods for sale. The tripods will be disassembled for shipping. These tripods do not have any of the advanced functions that Meade #883 and #884 tripods have, that means no: tilt plate, RA movement, DEC movement, lock nuts of any kind other than the mounting bolts.With this one tripod you can use three different telescopes. Some tripod legs have a small scratch or two-nothing serious. New plates have been made and each one is pre-fitted to an ETX base to insure proper alignment.
