DIY: Shutter Release stand for Sony NEX-5

I make shutter release stand for my Sony NEX-5. The main purpose is to eliminate the camera shake during triggering. As you know that digiscoping system has a long focal length and sensitive to shake/vibration to the system. So I am here trying the very possible to do to remove any shake to the system because slight vibration occur in digiscoping will cause the picture blur. In the picture are the things required for the stand.
When things are fixed, it looks like in the picture below.
Shutter release stand is now on the spotting scope bracket.
Looking from another position.
The 'L" aluminium plate can be swing to the left or right and the movement is locked by big wing nut on the right when it is already position. While the short screw on the left is used to support the camera stopping the down movement when shutter of the camera press down.
'L' plate is swinged away to the right and battery lid can be opened to remove or change the exhausted battery.
When battery has been inserted and lid can be closed and supported by the screw preventing shake occur during shutter press down. Small wing nut locks the screw so that securely and completely tight from any movement.
