Astrotrac Manfrotto 410

Recommended Posts

I have a query I know the weight capacity for the 410 is 5kg and with the Astrotrac being 1Kg? and Ball Head can amount to 1Kg. Does this mean we only have another 3kg to play with for camera and lens? Or does the ball head weight capacity come into play as well to balance it out?

trying to figure out what to buy as I need something that can support a camera and lens weight of around 5kg, but without factoring the ballhead or astrotrac

Hello , I use the 410 with my Astrotrac, 3kg is plenty for camera and lens, what lens are you thinking of using ? recently Ive noticed on my 410 a little play/flex.

Ive managed 2 min subs with the astrotrac and 300 mm lens, I dont think I would attempt a longer focal length than that and certainly not a telescope unless just visual.
