Thanks for showing me how you do the balance on your AT. I've seen others do it the same way and thought it might have been a mistake, but it makes sense to me now. Your garage clutter is forgiven...I'm not going to show you my garage clutter. Garages are for storage of bikes, boats, project cars and Jeeps, and sometimes astro-gear!;)

Impressive setup. Forgive my noobish question however does the setup put stress on the EF-S mount? I am thinking if its not totally rigid, even mirror slap would cause vibration in shots. I am interested in getting a similar setup to this. Thanks

you'll find that mirror slap is pretty much nonexistent. I'm usually using a gripped 1000D or the 60Da with corded power which is very light. I've even shot with a Telvue barlow in line which moves the camera out a further 2-3 inches, and didn't have any problems.
