Gitzo head question (2 Viewers)

Would the feet of the ATX65 or APO-televid 65 fit directly into a Gitzo GHF2W or GH1720GR without using a plate? Both fit directly into the Manfrotto 128RC and Swarovski DH101. Thanks

Like Joachim said, if your scope fits the 128RC it won't fit either of those heads directly. The GHF2W is Arca-Swiss compatible so it fits newer production ATX modules but not old ones. Neither new nor old will fit the GH1720QR directly as it uses a different Manfrotto/Gitzo/Sirui sliding standard, but adapters exist to convert an Arca-Swiss foot or plate to that standard.

Thanks for the information. I greatly appreciate.
Just to be clear, however, my ATX65 (purchased in 2017) fits the 128RC (first pic) and DH101 (second pic) directly with plates.
