Quote:Quote:Wow, this would be a great travel scope setup. I saw many of those type camera tripods at Goodwill for $10. There is quite a variation in Goodwill tripods. Having used a number of "cheap" camera tripods, in the long run, a fine scope like this one deserves a decent quality mount, one that is smooth and stable. A scope like this needs a mount that works well at over 100x.The Bogen 3001 is a good quality mount that shows up used that is popular among birders. My favorite is an old Hercules Quick-set Senior. It's an oldie but very well made and solid. I paid $5 for it at a garage sale. Not much money but in the time it took me to find it, I saw hundreds of tripods that were better left alone. Jon

Quote:Is it the scope or the Burger your trying to bring to our attention
Quote:Both - I wanted to show that the GalileoScope makes a good travelscope and can be taken to exotic places. The Finnish burger was not bad, as I recall.
