But most importantly, you must keep this in mind: No night exposure can be achieved without a solid base under your camera. I only shoot with my Sirui N-3204X Carbon Fiber tripod and Sirui K-30X Ball Head. It gives me the confidence to shoot without a worry of camera drift or shake of any kind.

An added bonus is that on the next day, with very little effort, I can switch out the ball head for my Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head and start shooting birds with the same confidence of a steady base…but that is a discussion for another day…
