More Camera Crane

I upgraded the tripod to a heavy duty tripod that I use to hold a telescope.  I don’t use the scope very often, but when I need the tripod for astronomy it’s easy to disassemble.   I modified the bar that holds the counter balance by using a piece of cherry.  The cherry bar can slide in and out in order to balance the camera.  The camera and crane assembly are completely balanced now and will rest unassisted in any position.  I am digging this thing.   This is going to be useful for interesting cinematic style swooping and panning shots.
