Question about Bausch and Lomb Discoverer 78-1600 Telescope

Need a quick release plate for Bausch and Lomb Prof. Tripod

I have a Bausch and Lomb Professional Tripod 68-4000 and I need to get a quick release plate for it (the original is loosing all it's padding). I've seen adds but they only list the make and model it fits and there must be some that would fit my tripod. I measured the original and it has a square 41mm bottom at the lower part of the beval. Are these things standard sizes or should I be looking for something specific?

You probably will not find parts for this telescope. However you may find what you need by visiting a local well stocked hardware store.

Most tripods do not come with manuals. Never have, so I doubt you'll find one. Try taking it to a camera repair shop and they can tell you how to use it or if it needs some parts.

Unable to locate product code, sku #, or part # on bausch & Lomb tripod; trying to locate camera mounting plate for same. This is my first professional tripod not sure about measurements... Roughly...


Generally sold as a non-repairable assembly, same as most other tripods.
Same applies to loose 'spare parts'.
Many tripods are simply 'rebranded' to whatever name appears on them.
In terms of time and trouble trying to find a loose quick release plate, it might be quicker and cheaper to replace the entire unit.

I have a Criterion 4000 that is set up for photography only. I have the scope, focus adapter tube, and the t ring adapter. This is only mounted on a photo tripod. What parts do I need for casual star...


You will need a diagonal, eyepiece and a finder scope. The photo tripod is not the greatest for astronomy. Acceptable for the moon and quick views of the planets but with a SCTs narrow view, you will be constantly adjusting the tripod.
I would start with a 25mm plossl eyepiece which would provide 80x power. About as high as you can get with a photo tripod.

Be aware that the Bausch and Lomb telescopes had terrible reputation for bad optics.

This is considered a toy telescope. Sorry. No manuals exist and you will not get any support at all on this brand.
