Telescope Equatorial Mount part 2.1

I made the new legs for the tripod this morning.  They’re the same shape as before but lack the large webs of the solid legs.  The previous legs weigh 4lb 2oz while the new ones weigh 2lb 12oz a piece.  Total, the tripod is now 4lb 2oz lighter.  It still feels very rigid when the spreader is used. I hope to give it a try tonight.
