I use the Bogen quick release accessories atop the tripod head - the 
kind which accept a hexagonal plate which is mounted to the camera 
base plate.  For the M3 and the Televid spotting scope, I use the 
plate with the 3/8" screw.  The reducing bushings are convenient but 
sometimes come out when the plate is removed.
