Re: My Mengs L200 telephoto lens support - a few more threads would be good

Thanks for the Mengs L200 reference and all the photos, this bit of kit seems to be just what I need.

Before shelling out for something like this I'm actually working on a design in Onshape, for a lens collar combined with a base that will screw onto my existing quick release plate. I was thinking that if I could design a big "O" to clamp around the centre of mass of the lens and camera, and then mount that to my tripod using the quick release plate, it might give me a more balanced setup. Looks good on paper at least

I'll put it all up on Thingiverse later for your amusement if I manage to get a printable, working part.
