Some type of glossy plastic. Nice looking.

Maybe Manny could chime in with the details...

JD, that Televue looks pretty darn nice on that Portamount.
As for what the tray is made from, it is made out of plexiglass not star dust as Randy suggests:-(

Thanks, Manny! It looks even nicer on the new bracket!

The TV-76 on the Porta is my quick look setup. I have it in the living room, ready to carry out through the sliding glass doors onto the patio on a moments notice. Great for casual lunar and planetary observing, or for just scanning the Milky Way. :)
