Although Swarovski does not place a dollar value on these items, since they don't sell them separately from the kits, we have checked on the Internet for comparison prices. We found the Velbon Sherpa Pro CF-635, principally in Great Britain, at £190, £179, and £134.

The FHD-61Q head may be a discontinued item, because we can't seem to find it for sale independently. Comparable heads seem to sell for around $145. We are calculating the "a la carte" price for the Velbon scope and head at $300. This is only our guess.
