How much the system itself weighs, I don't know. I mainly posted it because things like the unistar, etc. are ridiculously overpriced here once you get them imported! Something chinese made and mass imported direct to the UK is probably a better buy. But that's the only one I know of - there aren't any mass-made versions of the DSV-style mounts I know of.

The video head maybe with the side-mount might work, if the motions are smooth enough...

And yes used is cheaper, but harder to find... thgough there is this on one of my regular haunts, no idea what the specs are:
