I found a cheap and easy fix. Logs.
These were roughly matched in length and selected for low width/height ratio. The ends were not perfectly level or square but work fine. A 1/2 inch socket was cut (with a router) into the tops for the tripod feet. The ones in the photo raise this scope by 11 inches.
Advantages: cheap and easy to make
Drawbacks: May be a little difficult to find in the city.
Natural logs dont match scope finish. Can be heavy. Not reccomended for imaging.
