Star Adventurer, modification of L-bracket

I continue to adapt my Star Adventurer to fit my needs better.

I don't like to bring the counter balance weight with me, just some extra not necesary weight.

I have now replaced parts of the L-bracket with a ball head to save some weight and get it more compact. With the ball head I can now also rotate the camera to have it parallell to RA-axis.

Here are my modifications of the setup:

The Z-tilt head which there is a link to at the end looks interesting, looks a bit weak but maybe there are a heavy duty version to find.
