Scott my scopes: a few refractors (50-102mm), 2 Newts (4.5-12"), and an 8" SCT
Quote:I agree with Jason, a surveyor's tripod would be a good match. I've always fancied this one. Heard good things too.

Quote:I currently own four UA mount/tripod combinations..from the duel clamping Unistar deluxe attached to a Celestron CGE tripod to the Unistar light attached to a UA light surveyor tripod. All are excellent. The 40 pound CGE tripod is used with a C14 while the smaller combination is used with a SV 102ED.I have a Meade field tripod with the UA adapter plate and use it with scopes from a C9.25 to a Meade 12 ACF. It is a very stable setup, more so than the UA heavy duty wooden surveyors tripod, which I also owned a few years back. I would also recommend a call to Larry to discuss your options..good luck.Bill
