Used two tripods The combination of lens extended and the slow speed made mirror slap a real problem. Cured it by using two tripods.

For the life of me I can't visualize what you mean by using TWO tripods... how on earth is that done?

Both the lens and the camera are capable of mounting a tripod. Usually I mount my monopode on the lens. In this case, I used the lens for one, and the camera for the other...

With the tele my lens is almost 18 inches long...
