PST Mount

Hello All,

I realize that this topic has been discussed in the past, but I think that there are new solutions for what I am seeking. I have a PST double stacked and use a Denk bino with their PST corrector. I am finding that my Bogen tripod and head are exhibiting some annoying limitations:

1. Even though the Bogen arrangement is fairly beefy, I have apparently reached its load capacity

2. I can not aim the scope straight up due to the mechanics of the head I am using.

What is the ultimate alt-az mount/tripod arrangement I could get to correct these issues? I assume it will involve a side-mounting arrangement. Anyone care to comment on alt-az rigs they use for the PST or offer links to companies selling such things? Thanks for any assistance you can provide!
