2-0 out of 5 stars Nice Height, Poor Legs
This tripod seemed to be very nice...Until we tried to extend the legs all of the way.Two and a half of the legs worked well, the third had a section that would not stay extended.The locking devices are pretty poor.They are made of a cheap plastic and I believe that even the ones that do work well now, will not last very long with even moderate use.Next time I will try to find a tripod with a set screw type of leg extension lock.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wobbly when extended.
Why I bought a new tripod:I already own an old garage-sale tripod of some unspecified brand that I've used with my video camera for several years.In retrospect, I took its stability for granted, but it lacked a few of the conviences typically found on current tripods.It folds up nicely, but is heavier to carry than current models, and the camera must be unscrewed from the base plate to remove it from the tripod.Having bought my first high quality digital still camera, I wanted a lighter-to-carry tripod and one that allowed quick removal and replacement of the camera.5-0 out of 5 stars Great Tripod!
Like the other reviews have stated, this is a great tripod.It is functionally stable in spite of its low price.You get more than you pay for with this item.I recommend it!!Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon suggested a wrong accessory
they suggested me to buy this accessory but it does not work in my system... also, they did not return my money yet (more than 30 days since I asked them to return)

2-0 out of 5 stars Certainly not the best option available
The only thing that's nice about this case is that the inserts are already cut out for you.The plastic outer shell is pretty cheap and doesn't inspire confidence.The locks are a joke.The case isn't water/airtight.With this case, you're paying for an official Meade accessory and the convenient cut-outs.It's really more of an organizer, a way to keep everything together with a bare minimum of protection.So before you plunk down the money, do the research and learn about other options.
3-0 out of 5 stars If it was $40, 4 stars... But there must be something better
As may reviewers have said, it just seems cheep.A thin plastic case which flexes, with a basic cutout ofyour telescope inside.If it was $40, I would say it is great.But, at the price I paid from Amazon, I can't help but think there is something better out there. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars good basic tripod for good basic scope
I have had this tripod for a year and have been very pleased with it. I have used it in my back yard, in a field, and at the beach, and I have found it to be sturdy enough for my AT60 telescope. I thought at first it felt too light to be sturdy, but that has not been a problem. The snap-on shelf for eyepieces and such made me nervous, too, that it would break in the process, but again, after a year's use it is just fine. The holes for the bolts to attach the scope are a little hard to get to at first, but once found the bolts go in without difficulty. More advanced observers may have reason to complain that I don't know yet, but this tripod meets my needs just fine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Above Average Telescope, [bad] Tripod
I have to agree with other users of the Meade standard field tripod #882 I didn't have mine two weeks before it went in the closet because of broken adjusters. I have looked/called for nearly a year for replacements/repairs. NADA. Meade won't touch it because of " misuse". The AT70 I purchased with the tripod is a great beginners scope and nice features, but the tripod was a total disappointment. I think I'll try another brand when I get apetrure fever, or at least find a decent tripod before I purchase the telescope.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great telescope but poor tripod
I have had the #882 little more than a year and 1 leg adjusting tab has broken off and 1 of the other 2 is cracked. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Alt-Az mounting... Polar mounting less adequate
The mount is adequate for mounting an ETX scope in altitude-azimith mode, but a beefier mount is needed if one wants to use an ETX125 in polar mode for imaging.An annoyance I have experienced with the tripod is that the clips on the mounting bolts tend to slip off, especially in polar mode. Each of the two mountng bolts has a clip, washer and spring that can be difficult to find in the dark if the clip slipping causes them to shoot in a random direction. This tripod as sold is difficult to polar align. I bought a third party bolt to replace the rod that holds the tilt-plate to make adjusting the angle of the tilt plate easier. There is no easy way to adjust the azimuth of the scope in polar mode; one has to rotate the whole tripod. For most users, this is a great mount, but those planning to take long exposure photographs/images with their scope will be frustrated with this mount.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Meade 884 Tripod is the best for any amount of Money
I bought this tripod when I purchased my Meade EXT 90 EC telescope.I've read that the most important feture of any telescope is the mount.This has an excellent mount that holds the views rock steady.It comes with a nice carring case type bag.It is a polar type mount which means that you can center the view to the attitude you are at.This feature makes the optional Autostar work at its best.This fine tripod is a high end piece of equipment that will last the life of any telescope.I was very happy with the way it performs.If I could spend any amount of money I would pick this one.You need this tripod if you are serious about high quility equipment and for the price it's the best possible choice.Meade products are the best quility equipment used by professionals.This tripod is a must if you want the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars Overkill?
This tripod is a quality piece of equipment.However, given the fact that we're amateur astronomers, I'm not sure that we needed something quite so sophisticated for our Meade 90ETX.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars wrong case sent
I ordered the Meade 773 Case and it was shipped by Ace Photo & Digital. I received the wrong size case which, according to their "customer service" has happened before. They refused to pay for the return shipping, though it was their error, and then told me that the Meade #773 was no longer available, and that they could substitute a case for the ETX 80 which "should fit" Be very careful with this item / vendor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Meade 773 Hard Carry Case for ETX-60 AT Review
This item should have come with the telescope. This is very necessary purchase. The ETX-70 fits perfect.The case has a pocket for everything. The only exception is the remote for the telescope. It's cord has a hard time finding it's own resting spot. Put a reusable tie wrap around it and everthings fine. See I'm being picky and I'm still satisfied. My only wish is that they would use a harder plastic on the outside case. Face it, everybody doesn't have the greatest backyard conditions and this allows you to travel. Don't forget to reset your location in your settings. Those planets and stars will be even more out of alignment. Even at the price you pay it still is very necessary.

4-0 out of 5 stars Adequate
I've used the Meade 07021 Deluxe Field Tripod #883 with my ETX-90EC for over a year now and generally it has performed okay.The tripod itself is made of a light aluminium material for the legs, so while this reduces weight for portability it seems a little light on solidity.The locking screws which hold the extendable legs in place also seem a little flimsly.Having said that however, I took notice of reviews prior to purchasing the tripod and never overtighten them and accordingly they have worked okay.Suprisingly, it doesn't take much tightening of the screws to secure the legs.I often expect the legs to slip down but they stay in place during extended viewing sessions.The actual mounting plate and associated adjustment knobs all work fine and are manufactured to an acceptable standard.The tripod has a three prong metal bracket which sits in the middle of the legs when the tripod is in position and which folds up with the tripod when stored.This bracket is quite flimsy but has not failed yet.There is a centre tray which is screwed to the centre of the bracket to give the tripod more stability and holds eyepieces etc.This is manufactured okay.Overall, I think the tripod could have been made sturdier and from better materials in some areas.However, I have taken extra care with it, so I really can't complain as mine is still in good condition. I also think the tripod is somewhat overpriced, so look out for specials on it.In summary it's an okay tripod if you look after it and get it at the right price.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most important ETX accessory!
Due to some shipping problem of late, this tripod arrived about 3 weeks after my Meade ETX 125 and other accessories.The 'scope is useable without the tripod, but it is not comfortable and you are at the mercy of the steadiness and level of whatever you set it on.3-0 out of 5 stars An adiquate tripod for great telescopes
The Meade ETX telescopes specialize in their portability. When you add a tripod to the set, it becomes harder to take the telescope to more remote areas. I have recently taken my ETX 125EC with this tripod to Lake Lila in the Adirondacks. We were camping in a tent in a place that had to be canoed to, so we set out on a Wednesday with all of our tents and food and gear for a week but we were unable to fit the telescope and tripod, so we left those at the car. We had to make a special trip a few days later to pick them up. It would have been really nice to be able to take the telescope with us on the first trip. We ended up missing two beautiful nights that would have provided for excellent observing because of the bulkiness of the tripod. There is another instance when I was winter camping in the Adirondacks near Little Tupper Lake, and again we had to leave the telescope and tripod at the car because of the bulkiness. We were traveling to a lean-to on skis and there was no way that we could have taken the tripod and telescope along with our luggage. We ended up not using the telescope all together on that trip because of the inaccessibility. There is no carrying case for it and so the only way to transport it safely is in its outrageously oversized shipping box, filled with a Styrofoam shell. Also, There have been many car trips in which this box has taken up way too much space in the trunk.Read more
