    1) Good support i.e. sturdy tripod and good ballhead
    2) Good long lens techniques. (do a google search)
    3) Remote cable release
    4) Sufficiently high shutter speed (basically > 1/focal length if handholding)

    IS/VR technology does help but it is good not to over rely on it IMHO.

    Just go out experiment. If your hands are steady enough, under normal low-light conditions should be no problem, even if u don't have VR/IS or a large aperture lens.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.
