Thanks for the warning. It's actually the mark ii which I understand is much sturdier with its magnesium alloy body?

For the astro shots it's going to be sitting on a Sky-Watcher EQ3 PRO GOTO with an extra flat mount which should give it some extra support.

Read my previous post. As long as the camera is not going to have a big lens hanging from it, there is no mount problem.

Then again, fixing a camera to a tripod, and then hanging a heavy lens from the mount, is a bad idea, with any camera.
