Bogen-Manfrotto Grip tripod mount?

It took me ten minutes to decide what to call this, not knowing the name of it is killing me. I'm looking for one on B&H and other sites and can't find it.

Basically, it mounts on top of a tripod and you can attach a camera, spotting scope of whatever to it. There is a grip you squeeze and this allows you to adjust the camera. When you release the grip, all movement stops.

I used one this past weekend and loved it. I can see where it would be real handy for me to own. I use a spotting scope quite a bit and I think it would be a great way to help steady the GL2 I'm in the market for. Any help on what it is called and where I can get one would be great. Thanks a lot.

It's a joystick! That can't be easier than an arm to use! ? ?
