Cheap Jake's Dual-Duty Spotter Set-Up

I'm trying to cobble together a spotting scope set-up that will satisfy the following conditions.

1. Will work at the range AND in the field. (i.e. F-Class and Elk Hunting)

2. Armored Body & Waterproof for field use

3. Budget conscious

What I have researched and tentatively chosen is

Scope: Konus Spotting Scope 20-60x 80mm with Tripod, Photo Adapter and Soft Case Armored Blue $185
Konus 7120 Spotting Scopes

Tripod: Giottos MT-9360 (chosen b/c it has a 3 way column head for offset positioning of the optic/camera/MiniDV. Similar to Benbo in capability but easier to set-up) $145
MT-3

Opinions welcomed !
