Started this last week but it wasnt ready for Friday night, didnt want to rush it and mess it up. Its all finished now and works a treat.

It raises the Giro II up off the tripod by 250mm, great for the F15 Towa shown and even better for the WO 98, brings it to a nice comfy height even at the zenith.

Excellent job Phil - that setups looking very tasty (even if a bit lop sided lol) - what're you gonna put on the other side? :)

The WO FLT 98 sometimes resides on the other side Kim, gives me a choice of widefiled and long FL. When I had my old C11 (+ 2 weights) that was once fitted on there for a laugh and the Giro handled it
