Thanks all!
I wanted to see if anyone has interest in getting this gear I am selling -

Hey all!,

I have the Dynamic Perception Stage R full kit that I purchased as a kickstarter back when they released it. I used it for a couple projects, but am currently looking to consolidate my gear a bit. My loss, your gain! ;) All gear is in great shape and full like new working condition. The gear was never used in the rain and all items are working fine. The 6ft aluminum rail is missing 1 plastic end cap, but it does not cause any issues with the function of the motors or slider.

Asking : $1295 for all items. (Slide and Pan and Tilt with the Stage Zero Dolly + MX3 Handheld Motion Controller! This complete 3 Axis kit includes the Rugged Stage Zero 6-foot Dolly, 2 Stage R: Rotary Axes and MX3 Motion Controller. (includes L-bracket, camera plate & bracket, power source & everything you need for a full 3 axis system controlled by the MX3)

Please send message and we can work it all out. Pics here

Üçhisar Castle!

A shot of Uchisar Castle from one of the fairy chimney rooms. This truly is a bewitching and enchanting landscape.

Uchisar is situated at the highest point in Cappadocia, on the Nevsehir-Goreme road, just 5 km from Goreme. The top of the Uchisar Castle, provides a magnificent panorama of the surrounding area with Mount Erciyes in the distance. 

Many rooms hollowed out into the rock are connected to each other with stairs, tunnels and passages. At the entrances of the rooms, there are millstone doors, just like the ones in the underground settlements, used to control access to these places. Due to the erosion in places of this multi-leveled castle, it is unfortunately not possible to reach all the rooms.

ALWAYS explore the entire area you're in. You'll find that lil nook that will make your day. Sadly a lot of what is truly fascinating isn't allowed to be photographed, but I respect that. NO PHOTO NO PHOTO!

Side note: my legs are destroyed. 

The remains of the Zelve monastery complex are located on the northern slopes of Aktepe, 1 km from Paşa Bağlari and 10 km out from Göreme on the Avanos road. Zelve does not have the rich frescoes of Göreme and other Cappadocian locations. Zelve is spread out over three valleys, of which two are connected by a tunnel. The complex contains innumerable rooms and passages which also house many pointed fairy chimneys with large stems, at about 40 feet above the valley floor.

Zelve, though recently uninhabited, was an important settlement and religious area between the 9th and 13th centuries. Christians moved to Zelve during the Persian and Arab invasions.

Cappadocia's first seminaries to train priests are located here at the monastery. Dating back to the early years of monastery life in Zelve is the Direkli Church. Direkli is located at the bottom of the slope. The main decorations are iconoclastic-doctrine high relief crosses. These churches date to the pre-iconoclastic period.
