The Meade Giant Field Tripod gives your larger Meade the research-grade foundation needed for the most demanding applications such as extremely high power observing and astrophotography with CCD/CMOS cameras.

The tripod height is adjustable from 34" to 54", allowing for comfortable viewing from either standing or seated observing positions. It features super strong and exceptionally rigid large diameter chromed steel legs for excellent vibration damping, ideal when using your telescopes at high powers. Large leg locking thumbscrews (two per leg) allow for easy height adjustment, even in the cold when wearing gloves.

Connect the optional X-Wedge to convert your telescope into polar aligned mode.

Note: this tripod is not a standard photo tripod, and is only compatible with the following models: all LX90 models, all LX200 models EXCEPT the 16", and all LX850 models. For the smaller 8" and 10" models, the lighter weight Meade Standard Field Tripod (#7020) is an option, and for the 16" models, the Meade Super Giant Field Tripod (#7018) will be required.

Designed and Manufactured in North America.
