Quote:I was wondering how do you guys move your mount (and tripod) when its fully loaded? Such as moving from front yard to back yard or from inside the house to outside? Moving entire setups, particularly something on the lines of an Atlas mount all decked out with gear is simply begging for disaster and possibly raising the rent!I tried to lift my Atlas with everything on and it was very difficult! Also, how do you extend the legs? Remove all equipment first and then extend?
