To date, I have been happy with my sixty year old Tiltall tripod. However, this Benro tripod head, being introduced as a kickstarter project at, Polaris - Smart Electric Tripod Head, promises to do things that my Tiltall does not have the brain power to do, such as timelapse control, automatic panoramas, WiFi connection, star tracking, automatic leveling, remote control, etc. This is an alt-azimuth mount and for very long exposure (over a minute or so) star tracking, I would worry about field rotation as compared with an equatorial mount, such as my Sky Watcher Star Adventurer mount, although they state that they will introduce an expansion kit that will control movement along the polar axis and thus account for field rotation. I would also worry about the ability to balance a camera plus long focal length lens, such as a 400mm, that is easily achievable with an equatorial mount plus counter-weight. This tripod head is kind of expensive, even with a kickstarter discount, but would certainly be a fun toy to play with. I predict that it will take a couple of versions to work out all the bugs.
