I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote: 4 words: His Website is incomplete....
A search on his website for a tripod called TRI36L turned up no results. I wasted 10 minutes looking around at his bewildering variety of tripods but no TRI 36 could be found.
Can you direct me to a retailer who sells these?

Quote:Quote: What benefit will the Eagle give me over the other that is worth $800? The Eagle pier is a well designed, high quality "system" specifically made to compliment the Mach 1, and you pay for that. But it will pay you back in spades. A complete, modular, portable, rock solid pier mount system. Expensive, yes...anything left to desire? No. If you want to play it cheap, you may later desire something the Eagle provides standard. Buy once, Cry once... The Miller tripods are indeed nice...but different. I don't see it as apples to apples. Some may.PS (Yep, get the 8" extension)
