I found today a new way to make a cheap piggy back mount for my ETX90
with following components:

- one lyra collar for 100mm diameter PVC pipes (2.5 Euros)
- one small tripod coming from a Philips Vesta Pro camera package

The rotula is removed from the tripod and then attached to the collar
with a 4mm diameter screw.

Once asembled, this makes a very rigid and orientable mount that adapts
perfectly to the ETX90 tube. This mount might interest many other ETX90
