This is the nicely built and stable adjustable aluminum tripod Meade sold/sells with their fancier small equatorial and altazimuth mounts. It is a direct fit to the 395, 4500, 4501, 4504, and EQ-DH4. If the mount is by Meade and pale-green in color, the color scheme on this tripod will be a dead match.
There are also many other small equatorial heads by other companies that will fit to this hub. Check the center bore measurement to be sure.

At rest, the tripod is 28-inches tall
Fully extended, the tripod is 47.4-inches tall
The center bore in the tripod hub has an inside diameter of 0.85-inches. This is where the female threaded shaft of the base of the equatorial (or altazimuth) mount uses a bolt-and-washer means of mating to the tripod.
The tray is made of steel and holds (4) 1.25-inch and (4) .965-inch eyepieces.

Cosmetics overall are great+ to excellent. No rust to be found. The tray brace and tray are extremely clean. There are some micro scratches and minor abrasions on the aluminum legs, but no dents or bending. The legs all adjust smoothly and lock firmly. No issues with the leg clamps.

Also, this unit has the much-enjoyed locking feature for horizontal rotation of the entire mount. This can make polar alignment way easier OR you can use the eq. setup for daytime viewing applications.
It will come with the large, black teflon washer for making horizontal movement smooth.

Price doesn't include shipping. I will ship to anyone.
