Getting your Dobsonian Telescope's base level is important when using an object location system like a built-in Setting Circle, or a computerized system like Orion's Intelliscope.  And even if you don't use an object location system, setting your base level will make it more stable and prevent it from rotating in azimuth due to gravity.

These custom leveling feet are made from heavy-duty 8 gauge steel, with 3/4" tall threaded nuts welded to the brackets, for durability and stability.  The leveling bolts have approximately 2 1/2" of travel making it easy to get your base level on rough or sloped terrain.  The comfortable 5-lobe knobs makes adjustment quick and easy, and the large 1.5" diameter feet have a knobby, non-slip rubber insert in the bottom, ensuring that the base will stay where you put it, and won't scratch hardwood floors when stored indoors.

Mounting screws included!

When I saw these leveling feet at opticsmart, I knew they would work perfectly. Received them in a timely manner and attached them very easily. It works very well, thank you. I've seen some other neat upgrades on your site that I'll be back for a little later on. So thanks again. Cory W
Great Value!

I got these to mount on my EQ Platform. The fine adjustment allows me to get to the "sweet spot" of Polar Alignment very quickly. They are very "herky" in construction and easy to install. My 8 inch Dob doesn't task them at all.

Highly Recommended!
