Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes living with misery a lot easier!
Quote:Hi Ron,I suspect that your GM8 works much better since it's on a G11 tripod.
Quote:Funny how the people that don't have a TMB 130 on a GM-8 say that it won't work and the people that do have a TMB 130 on a GM-8 say it will.

Quote:Thank you all for your comments. It sounds like the tripod is the weakest link. If you put the GM 8 in on a Berlebach UNI24 (say, or a UNI14) and restricted it to visual use---would that cut it? Would most of you be satisfied with that?mm
