Swarovski 95 ATX and Wimberley II Gimbal Head?

I am sorry if this has been addressed before...I would like to know if it is possible to attach the Swarovski ATX 95 to the Wimberley Gimbal head II. If so, how would I do it? I use the Wimberley for photography, but I would like to carry only one tripod. I have a Gitzo Series 4 Systematic Carbon Fiber Tripod and believe it could handle the Swarovski. Can you tell I am new at this? :-)

Here's a picture of the ATX95 on some sort of gimbal head if that helps.

Hi,

while the ATX objective modules have a foot which fits some Swarovski and Manfrotto heads directly w/o a quick release plate, they also have a standard 1/4" tripod thread, so any plate with that kind of screw will fit. Longer is better to get a good balance...
