    leveling head for tripod with scope?

    A leveling head does not eliminate the need to properly set up your tripod. Setting your tripod on uneven ground with the legs all the same length is going to lead to instability. A leveling head may make your scope or camera level, but it will do nothing for the instability.

    leveling head for tripod with scope?

    Completely unnecessary in my opinion. Having your tripod head roughly level is more than sufficient for general observation. I describe my leveling process in this post. I do it without even thinking about it now.
