Need a small, lightweight tripod

I just received a from you.Unfortunately, it is way too bulky for my needs.

I have a new compact .  When I ordered the tripod kit, I had the impression that the legs would be on the thin side and the unit would fold into a much smaller package.

Before  I return it, what would you have that will deploy quickly, is light weight , and fit into a 19in. package, for my small Vortex scope?

Thanks for your help . Any input would be very welcome.

Dear John,
Thanks for your inquiry.
The folded length of the you bought has a folded length of 19.2". 
For travel, remove the center column (with the tripod head) and place it next to the legs for the smallest possible package.

Keep in mind that depending on your height, you will be raising the center column up--maybe even to its limit--to get to your eye level with your straight-bodied-scope.  Which is why you may want to keep the tripod you have until you evaluate one of these. We have a 30-day Return Policy. Remember too, that you get what you pay for.

In any case, you said you're looking for a lighter-duty setup. Here are some recommendations:

Manfrotto 190Go Tripod Leg  (You would need to purchase a tripod head with this. A lighter option than the one you have is:  Manfrotto 700RC2 TripodHead 

Please call if you have any questions. We'll be happy to take additional measurements for you.

All the best,

Eagle Optics
