My spotting scope came in the mail today:t

I opened it up and was happy with what I saw:


For photography I have been using an old tripod that has been in my family longer than I have, and it doesn't really belong to me. So I am in the market for a new tripod.

I have been giving thought to this neat little one:

I have a feeling it might not be as steady as the good old fashioned style though.

Does anyone have any experience with these or others? Advice?

If this is going to be for the range...

I suggest a Freeland Bipod. :t

Scroll down the list and look in scope stands.

I have a Slik U8000 tripod that I got from Ritz Camera for photography, it wasn't very expensive and works fine for my needs. :)

That looks like a beautiful stand! However I can't see the Freeland stands working very well out in the bush.

I plan on using the scope for hunting and for bench work. The versatility is what attracted me to the GorillaPod, although it isn't very tall.
