What LX200 mounting plate is this?
      #5747351 - 03/21/13 11:09 AM

Hello all,

I was browsing on eBay and saw a LX200 12" setup that had a slick mounting plate for the tripod. I contacted the seller to see were it was purchased from, but it being a 2nd hand setup they did not know.

Is this a custom one off or mass produced etc??

it looks good enough to be mass produced. I have one kinda like it, but it is a one off home made. it works great, but makes it kinda hard to get back in the case.
Try google!

Wow - nice metal work. I have never seen this offered anywhere. Maybe a custom job?
