My 12" LX200 is permanently mounted on a pier so I have no use for the
tripod. It has only been used twice and has been sitting safely in the
closet since I bought it about 8 months. It's in like-new condition.
Without a doubt this is the biggest most solid tripod I have ever seen.
It truly is a GIANT! Below are some images of it (the boy and the camera
are for size reference only and are not included).
These sale for $750 new but I'm only asking $425 (was $475). I still
have the original box used for shipping. The approx. shipping cost with
insurance in the US is between $20-$40 via UPS Ground. The tripod
weighs about 42lbs and has an adjustable height from 39.5" to 54". When
folded up for transport its only 46" tall and very manageable. This would
make a great tripod for any size telescope!
