Coast G9 Inspection Beam Pocket Light

It’s tiny, uses a single AAA battery and has a relatively dim, fixed beam. And with a quick and easy hack it turns out to be perfectly suited for illuminating your camera or the inside of your bag without ruining your night vision.

Coast FL75R Rechargeable Pure Beam Focusing Headlamp

I never liked headlamps until I used this one. The FL75R is comfortable to wear and easy to operate. I mainly use it for the red lamp so I can see safely without ruining my night vision, but also like the focusable white beam for seeing far off in the dark.

Acratech GPSS Ball Head

The GPSS is the perfect match for your traveler style tripod. Made with the same durability as the GP, it has a smaller base so that when you invert your 180 legs they can wrap around the head. Invest in the lever clamp model—it is the ultimate in ensuring your camera remains locked into the ball head.

Tether Tools Case Relay System

The ultimate making sure your camera stays powered all night long! Choose the right connection to your specific camera, connect to the Case Relay, and then add any USB battery pack! Add the strapmore connection to keep it all organized and wrapped around your tripod. Set up your star stack or time-lapse and let it rip. Gabe is still trying to figure out how long it lasts, his last shoot started at 12am and he shut it off at 5am and there was still juice in the tank!

An extraordinary work of art and craftmanship. The Traveler 2 is lightweight, to the point of no unnecessary weight or parts. Also elegant in style. Tough as nails and sealed against elements. the center ball head is precise with a quick friction adjustment that makes on the fly adjustments a breeze. Crazy good tripod.

The nifty fifty. Can live without it. A fast all purpose lens.

I love making images with this lens. I’ve owned two, dropped one (grin). I started experimenting with near focusing at wide aperture and doing long exposures. Nice bokeh. Like.

Profoto Acute B2 + head + Magnum Reflector & Grid

When I want 600 Ws of power, and a really gorgeous, controllable light, I pack this monster. When I got it, it was revolutionary in its small-ness. Nowadays, it is not as small as battery-powered flashes can be, but I still love it for architectural and portrait lighting at night.
