look at what was around in the shed I came up with this in half
else it took longer to make up this page.
Made of what
lonely tripod leg--- the others were used for other things.
Compass you either have one or you are lost------ this won't
work with a GPS
of aluminium channel cut to size
of aluminium cut with bandsaw to correct angle of leg
a few screws
screw of an old flash bracket
a can of
black paint is the last job -- I must get around to that.
of the pod is set to be under the nodal point of the lens, I put
it on an angle to balance it a bit,
the Compass top has some segments of tape cut to 120 Deg and placed

You can use
any compass or level but the bullseye is the smallest and is accurate
are by the rule of thumb "if it looks as though it will work
then that's ok.and
the KISS method of construction-----Keep It Simple Stupid .
is straight faward --- 3 images horizontally using the compass
to point the camera, then 1 up and 1 down then go back to the
studio and spend the evening putting it together.
It is not
as daunting when using the big tripod as the public hardly take
Hope is gives
someone the inspiration
PS You could
paint it white and use dark glasses but that's another story-----------
