I have a Meade Heavy Duty Standard Field Tripod. It once held an LX 200. It is showing wear and is weathered but it is as sturdy as ever and more than usable. A little polish would probably clean up the chrome. It is missing the original, central ½-13 threaded rod that was captivated by a snap clip/washer recessed in the top plate. This has been replaced with a ½-13 threaded rod that simply has a nut on the top that does not recess. This worked for my set up but will probably not work with the Meade SC’s without replacing the original configuration.

Thanks for looking.
