I have several Gitzo tripods that are perfect for astronomy. Three have geared columns, which are very handy as you can raise/lower your scope will keeping your target in the eyepiece view. If you're not familiar with Gitzo, they are considered the best tripods made for photography and were made in France (until the company was sold to Manfrotto - now made in Italy). They are built like a tank and will last more than a lifetime. All these tripod are part of the Gitzo Systematic system, permitting quick change from a center column to an optional flat top plate by loosening a single bolt. All prices include CONUS ground shipping and PayPal fees.

1) G410 Giant Pro Studex tripod with 526 geared column (silver): This is a Series 4 tripod made in France, rated very conservatively for 26.5 lbs load. 5 leg sections give you a max height of 82"(column not extended), collapsed is 35", weight is 12 lbs 3 oz. In well-used but working condition. One upper leg doesn't fully collapse (about 1" difference).  The geared column extends about 10". $275 shipped/PayPal'd.
