I am looking for a Meade Giant Field Tripod and heard that they come in two versions. The older ones were taller maybe starting out at 41" tall where the newer version can be as low as 34".

How can you tell the difference between the two version if you are only able to look at it in a photo?

I also heard that there are ways to reduce the height of the older one but not sure what is needed to accomplish this process.

Thanks for any input.
