JMI Telescopes TPWUMED overview

  • 1Description

JMI makes this medium Universal Wheeley Bar to support and more easily transport larger field tripods and telescope rigs. It comes standard with 2.4" wheels that raise most tripods 3.5" off the ground, or 5" for Astro-Physics pier mounts. The Wheeley bar has a maximum payload capacity of 100-pounds and tip receptacles with an inside diameter of 2.25-inches; and is adjustable to fit tripods with a tip-to-tip distance from 33 to 43 inches. JMI recommends that this medium Wheeley Bar NOT be used for 12" or larger SCTs, even if the mount is listed, as these telescopes are too heavy for this size and suggests using the large size instead.

    JMI Telescopes TPWUMED reviews

    Universal Wheeley Bar (Medium) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Product Well packed and documented. All the bolts and screws were supplied and fitted! It works well under a Celestron CPC11 purchased as a second instrument. I can easily move it around my roll off roof observatory out of the way of my 16 and to see stuff that might be obscured by tree branches etc. If I were designing it, I would place the wheels a little further out under the tripod legs but it is stable enough anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product Well built, easy to assemble and adjust. Been used in a CPC 9.25.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it says Good product, but it could be much more stiff without becoming bulky or expensive by selecting another steel profile. You can clearly see some torsion and flexing when dragging over concrete.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What We Wanted The tripod wheely bars were exactly what we wanted for my wife's telescope. She is a happy woman now and she can move that telescope where ever she wants with ease. Good price...
