I have a big Swarovski and got tired of trying various tripods. If you are planning on using your spotting scope for the range and trying to see tiny holes at long ranges, I think you may be much more satisfied placing it atop sandbags. If you are going in the field and wanting to watch nature, spot game, and the like, then a good camera tripod would be your best bet.
