    My parents are going on vacation to Yellowstone and the surrounding area in a couple of weeks and just bought a D80 and a Zeiss spotting scope along with an adapter to take pics through the scope. I've been selected to find them a tripod :)hsugh:) and really have no idea wtf to buy.

    Basically they just want something sturdy, weight really isn't an issue because they wont be doing a large amount of hiking or anything. I was looking at Manfrotto models on B&H but dont know what kind of head to buy or aything like that. The spotting scope weighs 3.3lbs and the camera about 1.2lbs. Help :hs:
