At the suggestion of a CNer, I purchased this tripod as an economical alternative for the Questar I currently have up for sale here, and it worked great! I had to modify it with the tools I have on hand, so not a real pro job, but it worked fine. I drilled a hole in the center to be able to thread the Questar down onto it snugly using one of the pictured knobs, and then cut an oval hole in one side (where there was already a hole similar to the one in the other side) for the female end of the Questar power plug. Since the cut was a little rough, I made a "grommet" out of a piece of soft plastic and some black electrical tape, and the end of the Questar plug fit nicely into that. The whole thing worked great.

So, you could use this for a Questar, or for some kind of other scope or camera or whatever, but I'm not sure how it would work for the intended ETX scopes.

Includes the eyepiece tray. The tripod legs have some minor scuffing.

The price includes PayPal fees, but not shipping since that will vary depending on your distance from Arizona (via FedEx), so please contact me for a shipping quote.
