About JMI Wheeley Bars

Do you wish you had an easy way to move your tripod-mounted telescope from garage to patio or driveway? The JMI Wheeley Bars were created for just that purpose. The sturdy base with locking wheels and leveling bolts allows you to easily move your telescope to and from your viewing location, then you can lock the wheels in place until you're ready to roll your scope back into the garage, house, storage area, or to your car for easier breakdown.

Wheeley Bars with standard 2-3/8" hard rubber wheels are designed to be used on hard, flat surfaces only. With the optional large-wheel upgrade, great care in maneuvering and ideal conditions, they can be used on grass, dirt and gravel surfaces. Wheeley Bars are generally designed to be used with the tripod legs almost fully retracted to reduce the overall width.

JMI Medium Size Universal Wheeley Bars

JMI has designed a Medium Size Universal Wheeley Bar to support a wide variety of tripods and telescopes. Details on which tripods are compatible are given below.

Maximum Load: 100 lb. The Medium Universal Wheeley Bar adjusts to fit tripods with tip-to-tip distance from 32.5" to 43.5", and the tip receptacle has an inside diameter of 2.25". With the standard wheels, the Wheeley Bar will raise most mounts 3.5" off the ground (5" for Astro-Physics pier mounts.)

*Do not use the standard Medium Wheeley Bars for 12" or larger SCT's (even if the mount is listed above) as these telescopes are too heavy for this product. Use the JMI Heavy-Duty Medium Wheeley Bars instead.

** Your CGE mount may require Large Size Universal Wheeley Bars depending on the tip-to-tip distance. It may also require the 10" Pneumatic Large Wheel Upgrade (to lower the mount to an acceptable height).
