What do I need to attach a 6k to a zoom boom? here in Toronto Dwight crane's booms come with a yoke to take a junior peg, but I intend to use a construction crane, and am not sure the best(safest) way to rig that. Any with more grip experience want to shed some light on that?

define a zoom boom?

If it is just a construction crane you could use a trapeze. or you could use a speed rail mount to the arm.

When ever I've lit from construction cranes I've needed tag lines to keep the lights pointing in the right direction.
