Alex, I was able to get hold of a HEQ5 tripod and with the legs removed, I was able to attach it to a pier. I managed to find a photo of the offending article in situ before I sold the farm and moved into the 'burbs. It worked well enough. The trick was to attach it to the pier and for this I improvised some small bit of aluminium out of a one-inch profile. It wasn't pretty but it did work.
