One of the brackets that locks the adjustable legs in place cracked. Where can I get a replacement from?

I think that Astroview is Orion, so try them first. If that option produces nothing, try listing a WTB add on Shop and Swap right here on CN. You may find a used tripod like the one you own for about $25.

Looks repairable with epoxy or upgrade the Astroview with some wooden tripod legs.

Orion's my most likely source, but since the same mount's sold under different brandings by several companies I figured I'd see if anyone else had a parts list online I could compare against.
