I will visiting Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in August & September. In an effort to streamline my luggage I would like to bring one tripod to accomodate both wide angle and telephoto lenses. I will be using my Gitzo 5540LS tripod with Wimberly Gimbel for my 600mm lens and in order for me to not have to remove the gimbel each time I switch to a wide angle lens and ball head, i would like to mount the ball head to the gimbal. I've thought about attaching the ball head to a RRS plate, for instance, that I could mount to the gimbal. Has anybody done this or used an alternative method? I woud appreciate your experiences and suggestions.

Thanks,

George
