    Benro motorized tripod head

    Ok so I am way more than curious.

    Between the canon mobile app and the connectivity of the tripod head.... Am I seeing pan/tilt remote shooting???

    My not at all friendly neighborhood wood duck requires a pre dawn blind set up and patince that would try job. It appears I could run this from a far more comfy location after setting it up (pre dawn is fine, it is the sitting for hours that kills me).

    The other is astro work. I have been pleasently stunned at the results of my cheapo russian 1200, having a head that tracked celestials would take everything a couple of levels up. Nevermind all the regular stuff this type of head would do for time lapse etc.

    Thoughts????

    Do you mean this one? https://www.benro-polaris.com/

    It looks quite promising. Being a relatively new product, I'm going to guess there will be a few bugs to work out. But it could be really good in a number of situations like you're describing.

    Ok...this does look cool. I did a quick search for specs primarily focusing on how much weight it can hold. I didn't find anything, but a video on astro photography I watched showed great videos and referenced being able to mount a 200 mm lens. So, this may be mostly aimed at lighter wide angle lenses, but still, great to have as an option. More expensive than a Star Adventurer, but it also does more.
