Agreed - lovely sky Murray and great result from rooftopping, Ben.

And can anyone remember the equation for leverage so we know at what rig length George's Nikon is going to roll a car onto its door handles hehe

Boom is good, my old suction pads are the let down of the setup at the moment. Got some better ones on order though smile

It is very hard to rig up on your own now (which I did with the shot of my Mini). I can still get a bit more length out of the rig when mounting it better with new suction pads

Haha! Tbh it'd be easier if I only assembled half the pole before attaching to the car, then screw on the other sections once it's mounted. I never do things the easy way though!

Presumably the rig would prevent the car rolling too far ...

Now then, if the pole was fitted at an upward angle and carfully balanced would it be possible to shoot with the car balanced on 2 wheels?

Heres tonights sunset, taken just up the hill from home. I've hiked up here so many times after a good sunset and every time something goes wrong. I had great cloud cover over here right up until just before the sunset then it all vanished, still not too bad...

30 shots total, 10 wide 3 deep.
