    My friend, your finances must be considerably better than mine... this is the best tripod I have ever owned. I simply do not buy the opinion that I should go out and spend money for another when all I need is a camera mounting plate. Simply does not float where I come from... thanks for the input.

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.
Welcome to the disposable age.

    I'm well aware of you dilemma. I bought a Giottos (so-called professional) video tripod, and had to perform a custom repair due to bad design. Unfortunately, you will have to hunt through local 'used' stores for a suitable replacement, since I honestly don't think you are going to get a new camera mounting plate. Of all the tripods I've had (some 8) over the past few years, only one was supported in terms of repairs, and that was Manfrotto.
    Slik, Velbon, Takara, etc, were all considered to be disposible.
    Sad, but true.
    I really hope you find what you need.

783001 tripod manual


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.

I have inherited a Bausch and Lomb 780200 telescope with no instructions as to how to set it up. I have it working but do not have the equatorial mount properly adjusted.


Is this your telescope?

If it is you can use a similar manual from TASCO-- look on this page for a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount.

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

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.
