Vixen Porta Mount
I don't know if the Porta II is compatible with the Sky Pod tripod.
BTW, I was thinking getting the Porta II and attaching it to my HAL 130 GP tripod, but think the fixed azimuth post would be in the way...unless I sawzall it off

If you bought one for your hal 130, all you'd have ta do is stick it in a vise an smack that pesky az post wid a hammer!
betch' it'd fly right off!

Do you mind saying where you got your bargain at? Most places have this combo at about $500.

no, I dont mind. I got it at amazon. but the funny thing is,
I ordered it last night, and this afternoon I looked in the same place and it was priced at $432.33! $100.00 more than I bought it at. I hope they did not make a typo that I had found and will change their minds about it. I was only looking for the mount, but the combo caught my eye whilst huntin'. and there was only 1 in stock. there are more in stock today, bu not at the price that I caught.
