With the recent purchase of an AT102ED f/7 and the M002C mount I am looking to purchase a Berlebach Tripod but there are so many to chose from and factors determining that. Suggestions?

DISREGARD THIS POST. TRIPOD HAS BEEN PURCHASED.

I HAVE ASKED THE MODERATORS TO DELETE THIS POST.

Which tripod did you purchase?

 

I considered these two for my 102mm F7 and M2C mount.

 

Uni-18 height is 33"-52" inches with a payload capacity of 121 lbs.    Weighs 17.64 lbs

Uni-28 height is 39''-64'' inches with a payload capacity of 110 lbs.    Weighs 19.84 lbs


Keep in mind the difference in working heights between these 2 tripods. One might suit someone's needs better than the other especially for a longer scope.

I really like the Nutwood Brown finish Berlebach offers.

My Planet is that great Nutwood colour. I chose rubber feet and a single clamp. 

 

It will sit beside my TV walnut & brass Gibraltar 4 tripod by a book case when not in use.
