Although not meant for photography, I guess this is the best forum to ask
I want a new tripod for my spotting scope (60x magnification).
As I have absolutely no experience with 'quality' tripods, maybe you guys can help me on my way.
As said, I have no idea where to start, but my requirements and wishes are;
- Max height at least 1.70 meters (and still stable)
- Quick release preferred
- Cheap (second hand no objection)
Already had a look around, but as soon as they started about the different types of the head, I lost it
What brands are OK, and which are better avoided? What are the different types of those heads and what are there pros and cons? Any other things I need to think about?
