This tripod is not fancy but did a much better job of supporting my Synta 150 refractor (since sold) then the aluminum tripods that 150s were typically equipped with. Adjustable height, maximum is about 5 feet. Weight is about 9 pounds. Accessory tray/brace holds three 1.25 inch eyepieces. Please note that this is only the tripod, no equatorial or other mount included. $40 plus shipping.
