Observing ladder with folding steps

Recommended Posts

When I was at school there was a local observatory with stepladder. This ladder was fixed open, moved on wheels and had steps that could be tilted back flush to form a seat at whatever height you needed. It was great for observing.

Anyone seen one or know of any for sale ?

Have a look at the FLO offers thread - they had three different observing chairs with various forms of steps on them when I checked there earlier today.

The type of steps you refer to are known as 'Aircraft Steps' and sold in varying commercial sizes.
Very stable and very maneuverable.

Thanks all. The Berle Bach is too low, but not far off, the air ladders I don't see how to use that as a seat and a step ladder. Looks like I might have to make my own..

Cheers
