Tamron mounted on a Manfrotto Lens support. This ought to preform well, the "tie-down" strap @ the front, will help to hold focus.

Have had the "old" self hypertuned LXD-55 mount sitting around, not being used...well now, have a use for it.

 

This is planned to be used as a "semi-light weight" field setup (and even perhaps "backyard" setup also).

 

Won't be guiding with it, as w/ F 2.8, and good polar alignment, ought to be able to get 120-360s unguided... time will tell though.
