Hi John

Thanks for the advice.

Since getting it, I've tried it out in the garden and it seems very stable and damps vibrations quite quickly.

I've had my scope blow over a few times with my old tripods so I'm hoping this will fix that. I ended up with a cracked scope body on one occasion so I suppose I'm a bit more concerned about getting a good tripod than the average birder.

As you say it will be great for overhead objects as it goes so high.

From the picture you can see why I need to retract the legs from fully extended.
