I have a Leupold 12-40x60 spotting scope that I use for hunting and I would also like to start digiscoping with. Currently I have a Vanguard Ph-304 window mount that has the QS-36 quick shoe. The hunting I do is both from a truck and walking as well as backpacking so weight is somewhat of an issue, but I can deal with it as I only backpack occasionaly as long as it doesn't weigh too much (5 pounds or so?). I am looking for a high quality tripod for the spotting scope that also incorporates a Quick Release. I would love to find a quick release for my tripod that works with the window mount I already have. If not, I will need a window mount and tripod that use the same quick release so that I can quickly switch my spotting scope from window mount to tripod without unscrewing anything. I need the head of the tripod to be very smooth and the tripod itself needs to be very sturdy and fold up small enough to be manageable on a day pack. My friend has a Manfrotto 718SHB and I like it but it has been discotinued. Are there any replacements for that model or what is the best fit for a tripod for me. I know this is a tall order, but any help would be very appreciated as trying to keep all the different models and manufactures strait in my mind is driving me nuts!!! I would like to keep the price somewhere in the $200 to range if possible. Thanks.
QR plates are not universal. They are brand and even model specific within a brand. Can't offer any window mount that uses a Vanguard plate. Currently the only window mount we can offer is the Burris, and that QR plate will not match up with any other tripod we sell.
