Difference between Bogen 3126 and 3130

Overall though, the prices seem about the same.
I hope to find one of these used if possible for my upcoming Orion ST80.

I know the descriptions say "quick release" but what is it that quickly releases? Does the mounting plate with the scope attached come off with the quick release option?
I see a price difference from $75 to $90.

Just a little more info. The quick release plate is about 1.5"x2" and just pops into the top of the head with a cam-lock mechanism. It has a 1/4-20 captive screw that attaches to the scope (and can stay there) so mounting and unmounting the scope is a very easy proposition.
Hope this helps

That is a good price indeed. I've seen you post that elsewhere, but I wasn't able to find it again until now. I would have gone with that probably, but Phil Frederick had a 3130 he offered me for a great price.
Thanks for the responses everyone!
