Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak

I'm in the process of ordering a Oberwerk 100mm Binocular Tripod Pier Extension and will try to convert it for use with my Telepod or Giro 3 alt/az head.
I'am hoping the extra height will allow some of my telescopes to clear the Oberwerk wooden tripod legs when pointing near zenith.
Quote:What is the size of the Oberwerk "tray" screw hole? it looks less then 3/8.Thanks

Quote:Interesting.How well would the 501HDV head on that tripod work as a mount for one of my larger refractors? I assume the head can be looked down. Can one point towards zenith? And if so, what adaptor would I need to hook a dovetail plate to the mount head?
Quote:Jim,That's the one. Is it 1/4-20 size?Thanks
Quote:But is there a way to mount a standard dovetail bracket to the swivel base of the Hercules so I can attach my scopes using the rings and dovetail shoe?
