Telescope tripod lamp

I found an old telescope tripod at a local salvage yard, and had to have it. I wanted to use it as the base for a lamp, so I worked with a man that worked at the salvage place to wire it up. There’s a simple socket and shade, and then I bought a photography light umbrella to help bounce the light around the room. My favorite part is the tiny little star-map light that has a very dim bulb so you can read your star-maps while using your telescope. Darling little touch! (In the photo below you can see the tiny little white shade on the little horizontal platform.)
