Where did you get those beautiful wooden legs? Did you build them?

I saw the title and thought maybe you'd had some kind of freak accident. Glad it's your tripod that got the new wooden legs. :D

Rob, if you are in the US you can purchase it from Hands On Optics for around $55 US.


If you are in Canada you can buy these legs off Antares' dealers. Antares does offer two versions of this legs - Yellow Brown , Black. They are at $45 CDN.


I personally got the black one for my AT1010 setup (in my photo gallery). The whole thing in black is very nice :-)

I bought a scope on ebay - Celestron C6 with a Polaris mount like this. It will be more than a week before I receive it. I was surprised at the focuser which is on a slide with vernier scale. Can anyone tell me about anything about the scope and mount? - Ben
