A good lens rest for shooting out the window.

FWIW, I use a piece of expanded foam pipe insulation made for 3/4" pipe. I cut it to about 12" in length and carry it under the seat of my car. It is split and it slips over the window glass and makes a very nice, soft rest for a lens.... for less than a buck!

That's a great idea! Cheap, easy to find, and easy to store; a win-win!

Home Depot or any Plumbing Supply store.... or maybe Ace Hardware. It's easy to find.

I use an old split foam sailboard rack pad. Like pipe insulation but 3" diameter and mostly pad. But plumbing pipe insulation is cheaper and found everywhere.
