Hi

Sorry, no such thing as a table top tripod that will do a good job on an 80mm scope, even under ideal conditions, not to mention those kinds of wind. No one makes a heavy duty table top tripod or shooter's tripod, at least that we carry. Wish I could source one, but no luck as of yet.

Grip Actions heads are sepcially prone to stability issues since they sit the scope higher off the legs than a conventional video head. Would never put one on a table top. Save that head for a full size tripod.

Do you have a preference for a tabletop tripod that would accept my Bogen 3265 Action Grip Ball Head supporting the straight Brunton Eterna 80mm ED 20-60x? The Bogen 3265 is nice to have, but not a hard requirement. Wind gusts 20-25 can be expected. I wouldn't bother you with this, but I've seen some tripods with longer front legs, I assume to support spotting scopes where the center of gravity is behind the tripod mounting screw.

Thanks!
Mike
