It's not a joy to carry .... most of the time it wears a 393 "monopod" gimbal head & gets used as an altaz stand for my 80mm refractor & bins. I use a Manfrotto 190 (the magnesium one) as a normal portable photo tripod, steady enough for most work, about half the weight and considerably less bulky than the 028, but not solid enough for a 400mm f/2.8 lens.

Incidentally the Manfrotto site lists the max height of the various models they make (the head of course adds a few inches extra).
