Micro Adjustment for Meade 884 deluxe field tripod

Reasons you need a Micro Adjustment Kit for Meade 884 Deluxe Field Tripod:

Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod has no micro adjustment.

Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod is designed to be use in two positions: Alt/Az position and Polar home position.  However, it is not easy to use this tripod in either one of the positions precisely because there is no micro adjust of any kind on this tripod.  It is practically impossible to perform a precision Polar alignment with the Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod tripod.  No precision adjustment, no precsion alignment.

Precision Polar alignment is now possible! Install this Micro Adjustment Kit and you can have precision adjustment in your Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod for the Alt/Az  and Polar positions.  A small screw driver is all you need to install the kit.

The Altitude scale is anything but precision on the Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod.  This only allow very rough, non-precision adjustment of the altitude setting.  You have to hold on to the telescope and move the altitude rod up and down to change Latitude. You then tighten it with the lock on the side. This is the altitude lock lever. 

The Micro Adjustment Modification kit

The Micro Adjustment Modification kit, replaces the Latitude Adjustment Rod on the Meade #884 tripod.  All you need is to use a screw driver to remove the original Latitude Adjustment Rod and replace it with the Micro Adjustment Rod.  The entire upgrade would take less than three minutes. 

The Micro adjustment kit allow  precision leveling of the tripod top platform in the Alt/Az home position.  You turn the adjustment nut to raise of lower the platform. The Micro adjustment kit allow precision altitude adjustment Polar home position.  The threaded rod allows precision altitude adjustment.  You turn the adjustment nut to change the Latitude of the telescope.
The Micro Adjustment Kit come with all the hardware needed and instruction. NO drilling required.  Only a small straight blade screw drive is need to install the Micro Adjustment Kit.

Combined Shipping:
Combined shipping is offered if your item ends with three days of each other. 99% of my items are on ebay EVERYDAY.

Please use the following rules to calculate combined shipping cost:
1) Use the highest shipping cost of all the items as the base shipping cost.
2) Add 50% of shipping cost for each additional item to the base shipping cost.

Shipping cost of three items: $5, $7.50, $5.00

Base shipping cost (Highest of all items) = $7.50
Additional items (50% or each additional items) = $2.50 + $2.50 = $5.00

Total shipping cost = $7.50 + $5.00 = $12.50

Please add the total combine shipping cost to your total wining bids yourself.

Please be sure to include your Real Name, eBay User ID, E-MAIL ADDRESS and ebay Item number in all communication with seller.
