A new, outof-the-box Realistic brand heavy camcorder tripod was given to me by my buddy GeoLaF, who shared an adventure with me this summer at Bagby.
He said he scored it at a yard sale for two bucks and I could have it for free, as he'd seen the old rig Ed gave me that finally fell apart and it grieved him so to see me workin' so dang hard to get it set up. It was a comedy show, folks.
It's like a dream, but it's real-life.
Tonight or, rather, last night, around ten p.m. Totally clear skies.

No shimmies and no shakes in the breeze.
This is the theater tower four blocks away, at the same hour.
