I'd like to buy a fluid head tabletop tripod combination for my Swarovski Ats-80HD scope.
Please advise which is my best option. I would prefer something with some solid weight for stability, and so it doesn't move around on the table.
My budget is around $250.
I’d recommend something like this setup, which can crank down low enough to sit on a table if you pull the legs out to the sides and remove the center column/use the low level adapter.
The only other option I can think of would be to get an actual tabletop tripod, but those generally don’t have fluid heads and super sturdy legs.
