5: Complement with a light weight holder

Sometimes when I travel I could not bring with me the big tripod. Then I have this solution:

Light weight holder

I have replaced the camera holder with a smaller ball head, and since it was possible to mount this on center of RA axis I don't need the counter balance weight. Much weight saved!

I don't think this will work with my 150mm f2.8 lens, but with shorter lenses. Now I can bring with me this as a hand luggage on flights.
