The good thing about the Rob Miller tripods, when they were available, is that they were almost as good as yet half as expensive as the Bisque tripod. They were a very good value.
If you can live with a portable pier instead of a tripod, Astro-Physics makes an excellent rock solid 10-inch diameter portable pier. The disadvantages of this option are 1) you'd need a machine shop make a top plate adapter for you, and 2) they need a fairly level surface to begin with because they can only be leveled a little bit via differential tension on the leg struts.

I'm receiving an adapterplate to fit my MX to my G11 tripod soon. I'll let you know how well it works out.
