iOptron SkyTracker PRO camera mount polarscope & ball head


Upgraded from the popular SkyTrackerTM, the iOptron SkyTracker PRO camera mount polarscope & ball head is a more compact mount, small enough to fit on your palm, featuring better precision, including silent tracking and even has a built-in rechargeable power source that runs for over 24 hours of continuous operation. The improved precision polar scope maintains a fine engraved reticule and now features adjustable illumination with eight brightness levels. Using with the iOptron smart phone app, quick and accurate polar alignment is a very simple procedure.

The SkyTracker Pro features four tracking rates, 1X or sidereal, 1/2X for sky and landscape, solar and lunar. All 4 tracking rates work for both northern and southern hemisphere use. iOptron have also added a quick slew mode with both forward and reverse to help quickly reframing your image without disrupting the cameras position.

iOptron have made big improvements on the SkyTracker Pro’s removable alt-azimuth base, which features a precision bubble level, degree markings for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control. You can also mount the iOptron SkyTrackerTM Pro head (without the base) directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4” or 3/8” threads. The iOptron SkyTracker Pro is certainly a must have tool for any photographer interested in astroscape or wide field astrophotography.
