$90 for this stand seems a bit steep. Anyone know of a stand that opens and closes on it's own for less?

Are you talking a regular stand or a century stand?

If regular, I bought some from fotodiox to replace some kit stands.

At the time I bought mine, they were selling a two-per-kit for ~70USD.  They have served me well.
