I'm looking for a camera tripod for my Macrostar Deluxe (25 lbs capacity) mount. I currently have the mount riding on a heavy wooden surveyor tripod and honestly want something lighter.
Can you recommend a camera tripod for the following scenarios. I beleive my Macrostar Deluxe has the 5/8" mounting post but I'm not 100% sure).
Setup one: The Macrostar would be used with my TMB130SS, which is about 22lbs loaded up. I'm not sure how much the Macrostar weighs. capacity.
Setup two: The Macrostar would be used with a lot smaller of a scope. Maybe 15 lbs Max.
So what are your recommendations? Is there anything available under 300?
