Love your tracker!! Shot is stunning too!

How stable did you find it for that lens?

Thanks! Well the tracker is not really very stable, especially for such a heavy and highly-magnifying lens, but as long as I take care to point the axis to the pole then it can work for shortish exposures. There's also a lot of backlash in the gears, so you have to make sure the camera is balanced to rest against the drive direction. Compared with anything you'd buy it's rubbish, but it's still much better than a fixed tripod. For shorter lenses it does a great job - this was the first time I'd struggled to get the 100-400 on it. I got a shot of the twin galaxies M81 and M82 in Ursa Major, but sadly I must have shifted the focus ring in repointing the lens and it was just out of focus, but looked ok on the rear screen. Have to have another go.

I might bite the bullet before long and get a proper equatorial mount. The Astrotrac looks a great piece of kit, but the price is unbelievable.


Mark.

Setup and result in one...

Main light: Canon 430 EXII through umbrella, camera left, iris 0900.

Fill: Naked Canon 430 EXII, camera right, iris 0400.

Controlled through my 60D's pop-up flash (faintly showing in the center of the pupil).

The photo was shot approximately 7 ft away from the subject. The Exif is intact.

This was a sharpness test for the zoom of my signature. Unfortunately, either the 150k size file allowed here, or the PB upload of the original, ARE softer than the original. Still reasonably good though.

Me too. I'm just beginning to seriously think about updating my tripod. I just got a basic starter Manfrotto when I first got into photography – it's not horrible, but over the years I've been realizing all the things I wish were different about it.

As you do a lot of macro it might be worth checking out Giottos' tripods with the funky centre columns. I show what it can do in this thread: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1083921 as well as one of the downsides to Manfrotto's system here: https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=13020142&po​stcount=18

Thanks, I'll definitely check those threads out. I do shoot a lot of macro, actually, which is exactly why I'm leaning towards something like this. How do you find them for other things? Landscapes? Product shots?

I did some product shots that I actually wouldn't have been able to do with a normal tripod as I needed the camera right next to the surface I was shooting on. I've done a few landscapes too, it's certainly not the lightest tripod but I had no problem carrying it around with a strap attached or even slung over my shoulder due to the foam padding on the legs.

Good effort - though if I were going to go to that much trouble I would have invested a little more $$ and make the piles deeper (I say that but in reality I would have to use a pair of 20's!!). Video is great!!
