Hi Snapper I have an opticron carbon tripod they are not cheap but i triad my opticron scope on some cheap tripods and the head seems to flex to much with the weight of the scope and camera . go and try your scope on a few 1st. I go out on my scooter with my scope and tripod and it works very well if you would like to see my set up go to http://rascal.forumotion.com hope you sort out a tripod let use know how you get on.

Be very careful with the cheap tripids for Digiscoping, a sturdy tripod is one of the most important pieces of equipment you need, I have had a few which seemed fine but with the slightest breeze almost every picture had blur of some degree! Try searching ebay for the Calumet tripod legs (around 20 - 30), these are a good price and then you can get a decent head for about 30 also. I see they have a complete outfit for 70 on.
