i got the same tripod, but it doesn't have the extra spanners (? i'm from Belgium) below.

Is this something you added ? does it help ?

Not sure if you mean the "Eyepiece tray" or "Spreader".

 

The Eyepiece tray was  made by Star Tek (long gone) so it's only available on the used market.

The Tripod Spreader (I prefer "Tripod Brace")  was made using common Hardware materials (see post #7 & #9)

 

Both make a difference in stability and the Tray basically acts as a small table holding everything I need (and then some).

Ah, ok.

Cheap and easy to make, yet effective!
