    I'm using a lightweight Leupold tripod, works pretty well for me. I think it was around $60 or so, it's been a while.

    If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
