Check out this clever
impromptu mount by Kevin Frederick.
He needed a quick mount for a star party he was hosting for
Bedford (PA) Garden Club on November 1, 2007. So that morning
invented this mount from his wife Jackie's old bowling ball
metal Folger's coffee can. It worked great!
Click on the left thumbnail for a photo of Kevin with his mount. The right thumbnail brings up a closeup of
the mount. Kevin made a tripod for it, but you could easily
it on a stepladder or stool. The photos are by Steve Vincent.
