Subject: Re: [JERSEYBI] Best tripods/heads for Vortex Razor HD 20-6020-60x85?

I can highly recommend the Swarovski Carbon tripod (CT101 legs + DH101 head) - we have one lightly used during our fall season for $658 (usually $919). I brought it to Cuba with me last month and it was fantastic; light, sturdy, and very functional. We have a number of other options as well here at our center, either Northwood (Cape May Point) or Sherman Hoffman (Bernardsville), ranging from $100 - $1,000 and you can always try before you buy. Another option is our Annual Optics Sale, April 14 & 15th at our Center for Research and Education (address below in my signature). More info on the Optics Sale is here:

Feel free to give us a call at our Northwood Center with any questions. All profits from our NJ Audubon centers and online store ( are reinvested to support our non-profit mission of connecting people to nature, and stewarding the nature of today for the people of tomorrow.

Hello, all.

I am looking for a good, reasonably light tripod and head for the Vortex
Razor scope I am about to buy. No more expensive than $650, preferably
less. Any recommendations from those with more experience than me are
greatly appreciated.

Great birding,
