    Tripod for SA

    there is no reason to be using it that low unless you have less well built tripod. my profile picture was taken in 25MPH winds on Anglesey, the manfrottos are absolute tanks even in wind. legs fully extended = polar scope at nice height and makes finding targets a lot easier. OP needs to make sure that the head they choose is capable of handling the weight of the camera lens combo. no point in having a cheap head that wont hold friction on a tripod that will hold 9kg.

    Tripod for SA

    Sorry Alan but could you explain why "getting low" is so important ? how do you polar align 1ft off the floor? i find being fully extend with all the tripod legs out on the 190 is solid and i can polar align in less than 2 minutes. i imagine polar aligning 1ft off the floor quite hard. and cold!!

    Tripod for SA

    dont worry to much about PA with these thing i mnaged 300 secs at 200mm just by rough polar alignment. by rough i mean put Polaris in the middle of the cross hairs not even in the circle lol below with the same cowboy Polar alignment shot at 16mm F4 300secs single sub

    Tripod for SA

    Duck pond

    i really like this Dave. The reflections and siloute trees give a magical feel.
  13. great work, for a 350D !! is there an adapter for the IDAS P2 filter for canon lenses?
  14. I took my SW SA mount with me to SKYE with plans on doing some long exposure test with the 70-200mm F2.8 on M42. i did start some subs but an overcrowded front yard with eager beavers led to my set up getting knocked so i only manged this poor attempt. i think next time i will stop it down as i was using it F2.8. gradient extermenator has done some funky things to the file. but hey ho back to the drawing board. at least i have a better understanding of what im going to achieve next time. canon 5DMIII ISO 800 5X5 300 SECS
  15. a little more processing,pics to be up tonight.
