Hi Matt, yes I used a dovetail ... I took the screw thing out of my camera tripod and attached it to the dovetail... I then screwed it into the camera and used washers to make sure it was tight and pointing in the right direction ..... In short I bodged it :grin: :grin: Thanks all for the comments :smiley:
