Product QuestionsQuestion by: Clark Gray on Mar 16, 2016 9:00:00 AMYou would need a machined interface adapter as the tripod uses a 1/2"-13 threaded rod with a flat top plate, while the bottom of the Atlas mount is anything but flat and uses a metric thread to attach to the pocket in its tripod. Neither Meade or Orion make this interface adapter, but a local machine shop should be able to make something that would work - perhaps by offsetting the mount to one side of the tripod.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Mar 16, 2016 3:29:00 PM
