This is a very unique tripod, when I bought it a few years ago I was told it was from some type of military equipment. The tripod itself is wood and metal, the metal parts appear to be painted brass while the wooden parts appear to be oak. The tripod is very stable and has locks where the legs intersect. The Alt/Azmuth assembly was built by me. All that is need to mount your scope is the appropriate tube rings. Movements in altitude and Azmuth are very smooth, and the mount operates like a dob. I had a 120mm long tube refractor mounted on this tripod for a while, this is about the limit for this tripod. This setup would be perfect for a 80mm/100mm short tube refractor, the 120mm short tube version would be the maximim I would recommend. I had this tripod for sale a while back and thought it was sold, the buyer never came through. I have added the alt/azmuth assembly and am offering it again. $100.00 plus shipping or make me an offer I can,t refuse. CONUS only, payment by money order or PayPal

Thanks Ray
