Quote:Little update.I have been in contact with Larry. He has advised me that the best tripod I could use is indeed the Meade Heavy Duty field tripod that I currently use with my SCT. It has a 1/2 inch threaded center mounting bolt. So I will have to make sure the adapter has the same. Since I will be saving money on the tripod, I have decided to "pimp my mount".
