    My surveyors tripod has one extension on each leg. I would guess the overall height at a moderate leg spread is something over 6 1/2 feet. Of course one can adjust the extension to what point is desired. The difference on a surveyors tripod (or at least mine) from a photo tripod is that in the upper leg attachment plate exists a round hole. The size of the hole is smaller then the lower mounting surface on a Bogen 3047 head. The only thing that is required is to take a 3/8 in all thread bolt and a nut and a small 3/4 in W by 3in L plate to mount the head to the tripod upper leg attachment plate.

    In the case of a post mount Majestic head an adaptor is required from the post diameter to a 3/8 in female bolt thread. The adapter that I had made has a larger lower diameter to mount to the upper leg attachment plate on the surveyors tripod.

    For those looking to shoot 8X10 on one of these contraptions, The Majestic geared head works out really well. I bought mine used on Ebay. Cost new $285.00 ...used $49.00

    Thanks Don for the specs. Might be worth a try at $30 appx for one of these over my reporter 200 series Gitzo.

    They typically weigh between 8-12 lbs. I'll let you know the actual as soon as mine arrives.

    I can't speak for all surveyors tripods...but I use mine to hold a 12 X 20 Korona...(camera, lens, and film holder weigh in the neighborhood of 30 lbs.)

    I haven't seen one of these ones listed online in person, but the typical leveling tripod should be more than enough for a Tachi.

    By the way, you can often find these at your local home improvement type stores. Home Depot or Lowe's (can't remember) usually have them.
    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
