both hub and tray are *** sold ***
This is a tripod hub and tripod tray for CG4-CG5 wood or aluminum tripods with TWO UPPER LEG MEMBERS for each leg. They will not fit or work on newer CG5 tripods with steel legs (which have a single upper leg member for each leg).

The hub is from a Meade LXD55 aluminum tripod, and has the original 3/8x16 center knob bolt. The three side prongs for leg mounts are each 1.25 inches wide, the standard separation for the two upper leg members on aluminum or wood CG4 or CG5 tripods. No leg bolts or other tripod mounting hardware included.

The triangular steel tripod tray came from an Orion CG4 aluminum tripod (probably an Astroview), it fits any folding spreader from Synta-made aluminum tripods. The original wing bolts for the tray were missing when I bought this tray used, so I made equivalent wing-bolts using metric bolts, wing nuts, and nylon lock nuts. They have the exact diameter, thread and length as the original wing bolts, and work fine. This tray will also work on older Vixen aluminum or wood tripods with the hinged flap on each leg. Tray has no dents or dings, and no scratches on the top, but there is a single scratch about an inch long on the bottom of the tray.

I will sell these together or separately:
- $20 plus shipping for the LXD55 hub only
- $15 plus shipping for the tray only

Paypal OK, please add the 3% fee.
