Since I am unfamiliar with this setup, what alt/az "head" works best with this tripod for a 66 ED. I am assuming that you would use the camera mount screw opposed to a typical "dovetail head"....

Thinking about a backpack size observatory :)

If you want a standard camera head, try the Bogen 3130 or 3126.

If you want a much nicer alt/az head (and lighter weight) go for the Universal Astronomics Dwarfstar.
