I want a grab & go mount for my Megrez 72. I'm almost sure on the tripod, it's between Manfrotto 190xdb or a Smith-Victor CF-3. I'm just not sure if I want get a pan&tilt head or the dwarfstar head. Does anyone use the dwarfstar?

I have a dwarfstar and think it's fantastic when used with my Onxy ED80 which weighs about 7.5 pounds all told so it should be fine for the Megrez 72.

Unfortunately I just bought a 100ed on sale and it's long tube (34") is not suitable. Might be selling mine soon :)
