Question
I have a Jason Astronomical discoverer model 313 wooden tripod pretty good condition what do you think the price is worth?

Answer
Hello,

This is a difficult question to attempt to answer without actually seeing the tripod, trying it out with a telescope etc. What I'd suggest is perhaps going to Ebay or amazon and seeing if similar tripods in similar condition are being sold there, and what prices are being asked.
