            Comments about iOptron SkyTracker Ball Head:

            I ordered this with the iOptron SkyTracker to do astrophotography. The SkyTracker eliminates star trailing and allows long bulb exposures. This ball-head screws onto the tracker mounting plate's 3/8" post. The ball-head is solidly built and I really like the large knobs which are easy to clamp down. This is particularly helpful at night, resulting in less fumbling around. I have had no problems with it and for the price, it is a really decent ball-head.
