I recently purchased a Kowa TSN 883 spotting scope from you and now would like to find a suitably matched tripod. I will also be using this scope for digiscoping in the future with a digital SLR camera.
I am currently looking at the Manfrotto 700RC2 Tripod Head with 055XB Tripod Legs.
Do you see these as appropriate choices? Are there other tripods I should be looking at? These are at the top end of my budget.
I would not recommend the 700RC2 tripod head for a larger scope or for digiscoping. It's a lighter weight tripod head and the panning action is pretty poor compared to the Manfrotto 128RC tripod head, which is a much nicer head.
Here are the links:
It would also be advantageous to consider the excellent (and less expensive) Vanguard Abeo 283 AV Tripod Kit, recently added to the Eagle Optics inventory.
Please call or e-mail if you have any other questions.
