Default Quick, easy, PV mount

Plans for the garden include irrigation, pond aeration, and an electric fence around the apiary. The power will come from PV/batteries so I thought I'd get on with putting a panel out where it will do some good. This crude mount provides convenient coarse adjustment of panel angle. I thought someone might find the idea useful.

An 8" sonotube, 1/2" rebar, and concrete take care of the support:

I've made lower links in two lengths to give me summer and winter (shown) angles. A small project... but it's finished
