My star adventurer setup has looked like this since I got my star adventurer: The tripod I used was not stable enough and I felt like it was the reason of not being able to get good enough PA. I had to sit on the ground to look through the polar scope (not that fun to do on wet grass), and when I put the wedge and camera back on the tripod after doing PA, I suspect the tripod lean back a little messing up PA. I have just been to USA and Canada, where I bought a Manfrotto 055XPRO3 and a Manfrotto 496 RC2 ballhead. I certainly paid for it but I am very happy with my purchase. The tripod feels a lot more study and solid, and so does the ballhead. Because of the ballhead, I can also use the star adventurer without the wedge and counterweights. Overall very happy with the look of my setup, and I am very satisfied with my purchase. The tripod is so solid and stable that I can extend the legs when using it (not fully though, that would be stupid), and now I only have to sit on a knee to look through the polar scope. Clear skies!
