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, 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 instruction

1) The original latitude adjustment rod can be removed with a small straight blade screw driver from the side of the top plate of the tripod.

2) Refer to the pictures on this page for placement of the wing nuts, washers and the plastic spacer.

3) Install the screw rod in place of the latitude adjustment rod and secure it with the same screw that was remove from the original rod. One of the wind nut and washer is on the top, the other is at the bottom. The top wing nut is to level the top plate. You turn the top wing nut until the top plate is somewhat parallel to the bottom plate.

4) The bottom wing nut is to adjust the latitude to the approximate Latitude of your location. for example: Los Angeles is about 34 degree north. Exact degree is not needed for the initial installation because you will use the Polaris for polar alignment. You will djust the bottom wing nut until Polaris is aligned.

5) Please refer to proper Polar Home position.:

6) Please refer to this page for pre-aligment check list.
