I'm looking for suggestions for a bench top tripod for a spotting scope for use on the range. Ideally it would be able to adjust high enough to be used when firing from a sitting position. The spotting scope it will need to support is likely going to be a Bushnell Elite 20-60x80. Weight EXTREMELY low on the list of priorities. I'm looking at a max price of roughly $150. I would really like to see something a fair bit less expensive. Stability and ease of use are the two really important things I'm looking for. So suggestions?

Check out Velbon.  This is what I have (Ultra Luxi F) and I'm pleased. The adjustment range is the best I've seen (the tripod head goes from something like 3-4 inches up to 5 1/2 feet).  It's set up for cameras, however, so the spotter sits a bit back from the center of gravity.  Stability is good though for the price.  You can find it for $130 or so with some searching.  SWFA does not carry them however.
