Hello all, it's been a while. I'm experimenting with night sky/star photography. So far the issue I'm having is fuzzy stars. I'm guessing it's my uber-cheap aluminum tripod. So I came across a goldcrest 679 3 tripod for $35. Is anyone familiar with these tripods? I know it's old but I've heard they're well made.

Any other tripod suggestions for this type of photography are welcome (or any other suggestions for this noob). I know expensive Manfrottos and similar are probably optimal but I'm on a budget (especially after buying the camera ).

Thanks.
