A standard video head is ideal and the most commonly used head for spotting scopes. First, though, you need to see if your current tripod leg set can accept another head - old tripods often used a different thread size for attaching the head to the leg set. All current heads, such as the basic, but excellent Bogen 3130 need a leg set with a 3/8"x16 stud
