Last weekend I used it.
It was very very very easy to control it.
The ball head is strong, stable and very comfortable to operate relative to other ball heads. Especially at night, in the dark. The large and prominent screw is a very important feature.
I ran into a couple of issues (camera and lens too heavy for the ball head - got MSM’s smaller ball head and it worked great), couldn’t locate the north star (smoke from wildfires finally cleared) and then it all worked! The lack of noise is just amazing!! Can’t wait till the next new moon!
