Peterson Mounting Assistant
Zoom  Zoom

The Mounting Assistant is a super-compact 8-1/2" X 10-1/4" mounting plate designed to simplify attachment of Meade's LX400ACF, LX200ACF, LX200R, LX200GPS, RCX400, LX200 Classic and LX90 telescopes being used in the Alt-azimuth mode with Meade's Standard Field Tripod, Giant Field Tripod or Ultra Stable Tripod. It fits the 7" MCT as well as the 8", 10", 12" and 14" RCX and SCT.

With this mounting system, you first, "square" the tripod using hardware supplied to insure that the legs are properly positioned. Then you simply place the rounded end of the telescope base against the three yellow positioning fingers and lower the telescope (as shown) until it sits upon the base. Instead of wobbling the telescope sits firmly upon the plate and perfectly aligned over the tripod mounting screw. Simply raise the mounting screw and turn to engage. (Pete developed this mounting plate after twice having nearly dropped his 10" LX200 while attempting mounting).

The Mounting Assistant's compact size permits convenient storage of your tripod in a tight space such as a closet or a vehicle without removal of the mounting plate.

To better accommodate SCT owners, a wing nut and washer (not shown) are included with the Mounting Assistant system to simplify "squaring" Meade's Standard Field Tripod and Giant Field Tripod before placing the scope on the mounting plate. This simple procedure has been shown to be 100% effective - the scope mounts 100% of the time first time every time. At present this is the only mounting plate known to provide this additional feature.

The Mounting Assistant is fabricated from alloy 6061T6 aircraft aluminum, and finished with black anodize. The mounting guide posts are steel covered with vinyl so as to prevent marring the telescope base. The hardware for attaching to the tripod is included.
