Just finished an eyepiece rack for our new AT voyager mount purchased at NEAF. Not the best picture, but it will have to do for now.

Very nice! If you bolt the outer part of the rack to the spreaders it will lock the legs making the tripod nice and rigid. I have Vixen trays that do this and it makes a big difference with my Oberwerk and Voyager tripods. David

I replaced the plastic spreader on my Porta II tripod with some turn buckles and added this table top from Lowes. I just place the tray in the center and hand tighten the turnbuckles. Makes the tripod much more rigid. I had to drill the holes for the EPs myself. It didn't come that way.
