Star Adventurer Astro-Photo Set

£196.00

Quick Overview

This is the most recent version of the Skywatcher Star Adventurer - now available in White, Black and Green livery, rather than the original unit's Red colour. Apart from the change in colour, this lightweight equatorial platform from the Synta Corporation is unchanged and still brings the user benefits such as RA Autoguiding, an integrated polar alignment scope (with additional external LED illuminator), multi-speed tracking (Siderial, Lunar, Solar, plus 12hr, 4hr and 2hr revolutions for time-lapse photography) - all in a very compact and lightweight package.

Details

The Skywatcher Star Adventurer is the latest, most lightweight equatorial platform from the Synta Corporation, bring the user benefits such as RA Autoguiding, an integrated polar alignment scope (with additional external LED illuminator), multi-speed tracking (Siderial, Lunar, Solar, plus 12hr, 4hr and 2hr revolutions for time-lapse photography) - all in a very compact and lightweight package. The Skywatcher Star Adventurer is principally designed for use with DSLRs, but with extra mounting hardware will happily support the weight of a small telescope. The Skywatcher Star Adventurer can be fitted to any suitable camera tripod via a 1/4" or 3/8" inch standard mounting bolt, making it a truly "take anywhere" mount. The mount also has the added and ingenious benefit of being able to be powered via a standard 5-6v USB lead - meaning you can run it off a laptop, with no need to use the internal battery compartment or 5v DC power supply.
