Sky-Watcher - Star Adventurer tracking mountadd this item to shopping cart
Code: SWSTAR-KIT-R
Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Motorized tracking mount for long exposure DSLR photography


Sky Watcher's Star Adventurer Motorized Mount Astro Package is an easy-to-use equatorial mount that offers accurate tracking capabilities for astronomy and astrophotography. With a turn of a dial select Lunar, Solar, or Star tracking modes. An integrated Polar Alignment Scope with an included illuminator helps the alignment process in either the Northern or Southern hemispheres, and a date dial compensates for star drift over time to extend the usability of the scope.

In addition to standard star gazing or astrophotography, the mount is also ideally suited for starscape photos and has a time-lapse mode. A 2.5mm 3-segment stereo jack is integrated into the mount and gives the mount the ability to control a compatible DSLR's shutter release for long-exposure or time-lapse photography. Pre-programmed intervals, based on the tracking mode selected, optimize the exposure times for the subjects selected.

The Star Adventurer mount features a Vixen-style dovetail saddle for compatible accessories and optical tube assemblies. It has both 3.8"-16 and 1/4"-20 tripod mounts to fit on most astronomical, photo, or video tripods. Tripod is optional if you don't already own one
