Best of the season to all! A new product just coming available to the astronomy market may have good application to LF photography, particularly for l ong shutter times - Both Celestron Int'l and Meade are marketing "vibration suppression pads" initially intended for telescope tripods, which "reduces vibration time by almost 100% and also vibration amplitude", and are claimed to work on any surface. The Celestron pads are available now, and the buzz is that they do work. Last I hear d, Meade hadn't started to ship theirs yet. The tripod legs just sit on them. US list is abt $55, they are available off EBAY for abt $35 (search under "Celestr on"). I do have a small jpg I can email if you can't find a picture. I just rece ived a set and am anxious to to see how well they work for both camera and telescope. Regards All!
