I am anticipating a AP 1100 in a few months, and have that plate on order for my Berlebach Planet tripod. From their website it looks like the attached.
There is a “Pier/Tripod Control Box Adapter” that shows as an angled bracket for attaching to a tripod. The CP4 manual indicates the 1100 needs something on which to attach the CP4. The 1100 manual on the other hand, on page 8, is a little confusing as it shows two screws for the CP4, but on the left hand page mentions “& adapter”. So I think the adapter is there. Maybe.
Does anyone have this mount on a Planet, specifically one with the Berlebach plate?
Will I need the adapter? I’m thinking yes.
Will that top hole on the adapter (the one on the bent piece of metal) attach to a screw that’s going to go into one of the four holes below? Or am I going to need something else with which to attach either the CP4 itself, or the adapter? Will just that one screw hold it?
I am hoping not to drill holes in the wooden legs.
But even more, I want to make sure when I get it, I have all the parts. Be a shame to then wait weeks to order some minor but necessary part. L
