This tripod was bought new in 1998 as part of a 'classic' 12" LX-200 setup. It has seen only very moderate use until the spring of 2001, and none since then, because I moved the scope into an observatory. The tripod is in excellent condition, with minimal paint blemishes, and no dents or dings. It is rock solid, and (in my opinion) one of the best parts of the LX-200 package.
These tripods are sold new for $750 (+ S/H), I will sell mine for $450 + shipping (in the original carton; price is firm). Personal pickup here in the Atlanta, GA area is preferred - you see what you get, and don't have to pay for the shipping.
