This is a giant, squared steel stock - - field tripod, with a built in latitude adjusting wedge (all cast).

It's not a Celestron product, but it was designed and made as a SUPER heavy duty field tripod for the C-14. I purchased this H/duty unit from Khan's Scope Center in Toronto, as a field tripod; I felt the Celestron field tripod was rather 'weak' and of limited use as a field tripod.

It has latitude and dec adjustments.(for polar alignment)

I have many photos - so just ask if you are interested.

It's black in color, probably weights about 100 to 125 Lbs.

It was purchased originally as a super heavy duty field tripod and wedge assembly for a C-14, but it would easily support 200 lbs... for another telescope configuration.

You could easily adapt this tripod as a permanent observatory G.E. or altaz. unit. for any scope up to about 200 lbs in weight.

Over-kill for a C-14...but perfect in terms of stability.

This thing is a bear, but it also is dynamite in terms of stability.
While I suggest that it would hold/carry 200 lbs, in reality, it probably would carry 2x that weight.

It's a great piece of equipment; could easily be used as an observatory - permanent mount...I'll take pics of it - so ask if it's something that you may be able to use.
