Hey Vincent, I have the Geoptik Hercules, it is a great tripod if you are not going to go crazy on payload, here is mine with a Edge HD9.25, 0.7 reducer, Esatto 2", etc, I believe something around 30lbs of gear:
+ the t-shirt to deal with a light leak I had on the system
Edit: I would say this tripod is the Italian equivalent of the Berlebach Planet, very similar.
The few times I have had problems with vibration have been when I am stupidlly "walking hard" close to it and the pavers of my bckyard vibrate or during a star party that people where walking around it and the concrete vibrated, here is a picture of that star party:
It was the first Star Party of my kid who is also named Vincent!
PS - I got the the complete package and liked so much the cases that came with it that ended up buying 2 more of the same brand with B&H to carry my things
