Scope stands

Hi All, I’ve recently had some good and unexpected fortune and have
acquired a GRS/Meiji scope. This particular model has the focus block
which provides me the option of purchasing either their original
stand or the newer Acrobat, or, perhaps a stand from a lab supply. Has
anyone had any hands on experience with GRS’s “Acrobat” stand? Have
any of you found a really creative way to mount your scope?
