Replacement legs for LXD55
Posted 10 February 2011 - 10:12 PM
Would really like to replace the extruded aluminum legs it came with.
I know of GTO's wood legs, and will go with them if there's no other option, but would prefer steel tube legs.

So, you would need a complete tripod including the spreader and the hub at the top.
I don't think you can replace ONLY the legs in this case. Just need to find a complete tripod.

Hi dont know if this helps but I have the ST3A tripod with my eq5 mount and find it quite stable. Another alternative might be a wood surveyors tripod but would require some work to adapt it. There are several good threads here regarding this. I just picked up the Secco 5220-10-ORG at
clearview optics sells whole steel tube tripods.
chief supply but have not yet mounted my cg-4 to it. The price seemed quite reasonable and all fitting appear to be steel not plastic.
