Is this what you are looking for?  Or do you want to spend a thousand dollars?

I believe Manfrotto makes Swaro's tripods. Two of the models are excellent setups that include the FH101 fluid head; the down side is their a little pricey.

I bought one a couple of years ago for my spotter and it's been an absolute joy to use.   Thunbs Up

338, I have the Manfrotto 055 X Pro B tripod with Manfrotto 3265 pistol grip ball head, and I've been happy with this setup for my spotter.  It's not the lightest setup in the world, but it's very stable and has plenty of adjustment range.

The Manfrotto tripod I suggested above is used with one of the heaviest spotters on the market -- Leica 77, which is a heavier scope than most current 80 - 88mm spotters.

Yep, it's a good scope.  I got my 77 APO off the Sample List, so I got a good deal on it.  I have the 20-60X variable, the 20X WA fixed, and the 32X WA fixed eyepieces.  I find I use the 32X fixed the most.
