I bought this beatiful tripod for use with a brass alt-az mount that I ended up placing on a giant 80" oak pod :-)
This japanese tripod is fitted with a universal AP thick mounting plate (1/2" thk black annodized aluminum) that will hold a variety of medium duty mounts like the AP600 series that I'm told had been on it before I bought it. All in excellent condition with high quaility components. Cost $600 new, but priced to sell at $250 obo. More photos available upon request. Many thanks for consideration!
