If the MXT was sold by Zone VI it probably comes with Fred Picker's cold-light head in which case you must be very careful moving/shipping it as they can break quite easily. My cold-light head was broken in transit and Calumet took it in and repaired it perfectly for $130.00 (paid for by UPS). It's a great set-up. As for the tripod, You have what Fred would say is "the best damn tripod ever made"!
