This rig looks like a light


This rig looks like a light stand, not a tripod. There are much heavier, sky high light stands available which will put the camera up on high with greater stability.


That said, as to TRIPODS which go stratospheric, the closest thing would likely be the (find a used one on Ebay) Gitzo Tele Studex Giant, of which there were models which soared past 10 feet, and would be a stable platform to build something which went higher. The problem with all current tripods is they have long forgotten how to go high combined with forgetting how to be truly stable. There are some short by comparison professional tripods which are stable and cost several thousands of dollars, but that does not seem to be your goal.
