I was at a digital imaging/photoshopping seminar by Ron Erwin tonight, and for very long lenses he suggested using 2 tripods. One for the camera one for the lens. That would be very stable, but I just can't seesetting up and aiming thatrig quickly.

I've heard of that type of setup. Another thing I've heard of is hooking something like a bungie cord from your lens to the tripod len. It gives it another point of stability.

I've never actually seen something like that used in the real world.

Both seem like they would be much to unwieldy to be useful in many of the situations I use. The birds rarely sit still... and I'd have to carry more weight. It might work for some, but I'm not sure it would work for me.
