Found it an interesting approach in eliminating the wedge with the ol' fork mount

Never mind I thought the page stopped on the phone but there was more info.. it seems to be a Roger Tuthill designed mount.

No worries! It actually looks like a DIY-er could "copy" it...not bad.

looks like the front leg might be adjustable in height and maybe the angle between the two.. or just have it fixed for your main altitude of observing.

Yes, old Tuthill design. Simpler to setup that a tripod with a wedge and I think solider than the old wedgepod unless you added a DIY tripod spreader to stiffen it up.
