Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod micro adjustment kit

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.

Meade #884 Deluxe Field Tripod 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, 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.

Installation:
1) Remove the original Latitude rod by remove the screw with a small straght blade screw driver.
2) Hold the long screw rod, with the end with the hole pointing up, remove the lower wing nut, washer and nylon colar. Now you have the screw rod with the wing nut and a washer close to the hole on the srew rod and the washer. Insert the assembly into the "locking nut" (see the picture on lower left),
3) Replace the screw in tripod and secure the screw rod with the screw you just removed.
4) Take a look at the photo at lower left. Put the nylon collar, wash and wing nut, back on the screw rod in the same order. You are done.

Note:
1) The top wing nut is for leveling the top tripod platform.
2) The bottom wing nut is to adjust the Latitude in Polar home position.
3) Make sure the "locking" lever on the side to lock the original Latitude rod is NOT tighten too much because this may damage the thread. It is not really necessary to lock the screw rod. The weight of the telescope will hold it in place securely.
