DS silver tripod base with an adapter plate( 3/4"/5/8" plywood, unfinished) for ETX 60/70/80/90. Strong leg locks, no cracks, good foot pads, includes eyepiece tray, the wood adapter plate is about 7 1/2" wide, each plate has been pre-fitted to insure screw holes align with bolts and telescope base, stable, your ETX can never fall off the plate/tripod. The tripod is 29 1/2" closed, 45 1/4" tall, 39" base. 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 tray is DS factory original. The tripod 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. The price is for one tripod. Telescope not included.
