Sure, go for it! It looks a little lightweight, which is of course good and bad. Do you know how well it worked when it was new?

Didn't track that well, slop in the gears. A big rubber band (yup) fixed the slop problem. If the motor can't handle it, I'll put a stepper in there. With the counterweight, I can balance my 7D with a 300 f/2.8L. If the motor cuts it, I'm a happy manĀ
