At the time that I purchased the Berleback for my refractor as part of an alt/az and Equatorial (for tracking) mount setup; I was thinking I would need a smaller lighter tripod setup for grab n' go. But now with the potential acquisition of a Chamonix 045n-1, I may end up with yet another tripod.

Oh boy ...

BTW Bethe, I like your work. I can understand your desire to return to the United Kingdom.
