Thank you all for your answers.

I've found a cheap offer with a used Manfrotto 055 XPROB and Manfrotto 701 HDV head. So I will try this combination for my ED82 at first.

My Manfrotto 3236 and Manfrotto 501 head held this Orion 100 ED really well. I used an adapter piece of aluminum with this. I used the same tripod and head with my Nikon 82 ED A spotter but not the aluminum adapter.

The Manfrotto 701 HDV (though no longer made) is a pretty good head - well I like mine
