  1. 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!!
  2. 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
  3. yes its solid tripod it will be excellent for the SA. i use a Manfotto 190 for mine very similar to the one you have listed.
  4. i really like this Dave. The reflections and siloute trees give a magical feel.
  5. great work, for a 350D !! is there an adapter for the IDAS P2 filter for canon lenses?
  6. 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

  17. its the resolution you want to be looking at I.E monitor not the graphics card.
  18. you need 8GB ram with duel core or quad core. for things to run smoothly anything less and you'll be frustrated. i use 8GB ram with a a quad core I 7000 series intel processor and i stitch huge panoramas with out any issues. As above SSD is nice but not so much a requirement. yes exactly this! thats why i bought my laptop its 8GB RAM with the ability to upgrade to 16GB RAM with just a plug and play.
