TeleVue Gibraltar Upgrade Kit GUK-1001
is used to adapt old TeleVue Gibraltar mounts
for new mount heads
Until 2002, Gibraltar tripods
used a 1 1/2" diameter bearing post in a plastic bushing pressed into the tripod head casting, for horizontal motion.
Current model Televue Gibraltar tripods
bearing system built into the horizontal plate of the Tele Pod head
A 3/8" threaded stud goes from the Tele Pod
through a 3/8"
hole in the current TeleVue Gibraltar Head
and a lock knob and thick spacer
"washer" fastens the Tele Pod
to the Gibraltar casting.
