What quick release mount do you recommend for this setup?
Asked by: D
A Spotting scope should be used with Any Video Fluid head to facilitate fluid, non vibration movement as one Pans or follows an object, expecially at the High Magnifications on most scopes. An example of a common fluid head is, Manfrotto 700RC2 Mini Video Fluid Head B&H # MA700RC2 MFR # 700RC2 Another design, is where the Plate is Much longer to provide better balance in general, or especially when using Camera's or smart phone digiscoping. An example of a advanced fluid head is, Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base BH #MAMVH502AH • MFR #MVH502AH Or, in some but not all cases, this can be added to an existing tripod head. Axler QRA-501L Quick Release Assembly BH #AXQRA501L • MFR #QRA-501L
