I'm looking for a travel tripod to carry my little 60mm f/5 Meade 277 refractor. I saw that Costco carries this Dolica carbon fiber tripod. Has anyone any experience with this tripod? I gather the rule of thumb for carrying capacity is to divide the stated load capacity by 2. In this case 13lbs/2 = 6.5 lbs. The price is nice, $99. Or any other low price alternatives?

Thanks,

Roger
