Berlebach spreader tray / three tripods

Recommended Posts

Hello all.   Been working on an upgrade to my tripod collection following on from seeing a thread from @johninderbywhere he was able to add a Berlebach tripod spreader to his EQ6 tripod. 

I really liked the look of this. I ordered the parts with a view to a build myself.  As the parts were being ordered and delivered I saw that John was selling the tripod, including the upgrade, to @asteria ,Ed, who bought the tripod from John.  I did enquire with John about buying the spreader but a deal had already been agreed. 

All my parts duly arrived and I set about sorting my EQ6 tripod out.  Things went well. 

Ed then got in touch to see, as he was not going to use the upgrade, whether I would like to make a purchase.  Needless to say I did.  May seem a little like overkill to some but I am now in the position of being able to add my Berlebach tripod tray to any of my three tripods.  Amazing what you might get up to while the clouds frustrate this hobby of ours.
