Of course, you know that I've gone to almost 100% hand holding. I use my tripod when I'm going to focus on one subject for a long period of time and I don't expect a lot of movement. The tripod gives my arms a rest.

I use the Arca-Swiss Z1 ballhead (which is also great for scenics and meteor shadows) combined with the Wimberley Sidekick, a combination that I highly recommend.
