For you Stowaway owners, which accessory plate are you using attached to the top of the scope?  I'm looking for a plate that can use the AP slider bars, like the 7-inch SB0800.

I use the same bar that's on the bottom.  I am not looking to mount anything on top - I mostly use it as a handle.  I purchased an extra one at the time I purchased my scope.

I use the SBD12 to mount to my Mach1 and use the V bar SB0800 that came with scope for accessories and as a handle. If I need more room I can always flip it around and use the 7" V plate on the mount the Losmandy plate for accessories :) 

 

The SBD12 was recommended to me by AP due to the fact that it raises the scope slightly for potential clearance issues I might encounter.

I did the same, makes a great handle.
