Made by Berlebach of Germany. As an experienced wood craftsman myself, I can wholeheartedly tell you this is one of the finest observing chairs I've ever seen or used. The craftsmanship and quality are stunning up close and must be seen to be appreciated.

I measured the adjustable seat height and it actually moved from about 10" to 31".

Load capacity 220 lbs
Weight 8.8 lbs.
Price $219

The two rear leg struts, snap into place so the chair doesn't close when you lift it around the telescope.

The seat cushion simply slides over the leg struts without any need to remove or unscrew anything.

The seat cushion is firmly held in place when adjusted to the desired height. Adjustments can easily be made by pulling back on the black pegs.

The whole chair occupies very little space.
