Product Description

This 6.0" diameter, 12.0" high tripod extension fits G-11 and GM-8 mounts only. It mounts between the tripod legs and the equatorial head to add 12" of height to the telescope.

This raises the eyepieces of long focal ratio refractors or fast focal ratio reflectors to a more comfortable observing height and helps keep the tail piece of long optical tubes from hitting the tripod legs in certain observing positions. Mounting holes are provided in the EX12 so that the posts that hold the electronics that are normally mounted on the side of the GM8 and G11 mounts can be re-positioned on the extension to raise the electronics to a more comfortable height, as well.

The 6 pound 6 ounce extension is made of machined aluminum, with a black painted exterior to match the tripod and equatorial head.

Fit and finish is excellent - it bolted on without a problem. It brought my scope up to a manageable height on my pier without adding any wobbling. Just what I was looking for. (Posted on 10/17/2019)

I have used these on both of my GM-8's and both of my GM-11's. They provide outstanding stability while getting your mechanics up and out of the tripod, and help to keep you from craning under the scope to see. (Posted on 7/22/2019)
