Hi all! Currently searching for a better way to mount my Nikon D5600 to my iOptron Skytracker Pro. I've been using a single ball head but that causes the camera to essentially "hang" off one side or the other on shots where the camera needs to be at or near vertical. As a result, the extra torque generated seems to throw off the tracking. My camera is well within the tracker's weight limit so I don't think I need to worry about buying the counterweight kit right now - I just need a better/different mounting scheme.
What I'd like to find is essentially a compact l-bracket that's about 2.5 inches long on each side and has a 3/8" mounting hole for the tracker and a 3/8" locking screw for the ball head. I'm attaching a sketch that hopefully gets the idea across. Unfortunately I don't have any of the tools to make something like this, so maybe I could have it 3D-printed or something? Open to ideas on that front, or other potential options if anyone else has this tracker and has figured out something effective. The l-brackets I've been able to find are generally too large and would require 1/4" to 3/8" adapters in multiple spots, which is introducing points of failure that I'd rather avoid. Thanks!
