Swarovski scope and tripod choices?

Q from Mary Joe:

I noticed the differences in height and weight between the Swarovski FH 101/Tripod 2 and the AT 101 Aluminum Tripod with DH 101 Head. Are there any other factors to consider in choosing one over the other to be used with a 65mm STM spotting scope?


A:

Thanks for contacting Eagle Optics regarding your question about the Swarovski tripod kits.
Either tripod kit would be fine to use with your Swarovski scope. Since you are using a straight scope, the height of the tripod will be important. The higher you have to raise the center column to make the scope align with your eye, the less stablility you will have. Therefore your choice will depend on your physical height.
