Post motorized head / dolly questions
I've been a photographer for 12 years ( usually weddings, automotive, family ) I've been wanting to do something different, so I started venturing into time lapse ( I've made 4 ) but I want to do more.... ( funny how that works )

so I have a couple questions and hopefully you guys don't pick on me for asking.

With a dolly, you can do vertically, angle, straight across a scene ( or in software, but I dont want to do this ) If I were to get a dolly, it would be a DP, since its decently priced. then once the head it purchase. How do you control the head ( how fast you want it to turn, rotate, angle....also, how do you get it to move with the rotation of the earth to get galaxy shots. ) ( sorry for the newb questions :( )

with a motorized head, its more for pano's and if you want to do astro and have the head rotate with the earth to get galaxies. What is a decently priced head?

Are you have to have a motorized head on a dolly and both work with each other?

Am I somewhat on track here?

sure you can use both together!

Here's a really cool example of dolly with pan/tilt head riding on the dolly from Dakotalapse:

okay. Do they work seamlessly together?

Again, sorry for the questions.
