Laser Exhaust without enclosure

Hi all. I am about to get my laser going on my longmill 30x48 and am trying to figure out how to exhaust it. I have a good inline fan i can use and a easy path to exhaust it outside. My issue is how to keep the exhaust hose above the laser, what do i attach it to? Is there a bracket available like the dust collection mount? What does everyone do for this part of the setup?? I do not want an enclosure at all. I like my machine to be open.

A little cumbersome currently but works fairly well if the piece is of reasonable size. The inline fan is ducted outside of course.

I,m still in my setup phase, needing to implement fume removal too. I have a kitchen suction device lying around and might go for that or split the inline and connect it to the office duct on the way out.

I haven’t yet crystalized it yet so I will watch this topic for ideas. If I have mine worked out I’ll post it here.
