4-0 out of 5 stars A good light weight tripod for spotter or camera
I've been using this tripod with my 35mm cameras, medium format cameras (Hasselblads), ETX90 spotting scope and Orion Short Tube 80 refractor. The tripod performs well in most cases, and has a built in bubble level to help in leveling the tripod. The only shortcomings are that the pan head is difficult to adjust in small increments, so centering items in the telescopes are not as effortless as one would like. This tripod is a great platform for a 35mm camera or a medium format camera with shorter lenses. When I use my longest lenses (350mm & 500mm) on my Hasselblad, I have to take additional measures to insure that the tripod remains steady. Then again, these are probably beyond what this tripod was designed for. ... 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

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
