This time the rig was lifted onto the roof of an abandoned building that features some nice old dishes. We placed the dolly diagonally to the subject to simulate a rotating view, turned out very subtle. HD full screen this one.

Bugs are ironed out now, time to make something decent. Time is our ultimate enemy, with many great subject (stars, dusk->dawn) requiring many many hours of both movement and shutter time. Camping next to the rig in operation would seem to be a good solution, that is unless a drunk someone (unnamed) blindly pisses out of his tent flap into it.

    Fair point. Just set it up at a higher elevation from that of my tent vestibules and you’ll be right as mate.

    Fully active radio site and active p2p microwave links. I wouldn’t camp next to those dishes!

    Long since abandoned. The building these are on is in quite a state of disrepair.
