Precise Polar Alignment for Pinpoint Stars Astrophotography

The integrated Polar Scope with an included illuminator helps the polar alignment process in both the Northern or Southern hemispheres. That is a great advantage for achieving professional astronomical photos. The equatorial wedge is equipped with fine adjustment knobs in both azimuth and latitude axes for easily centring the celestial pole without moving the tripod.

Additionally, the autoguide system enhances the tracking in right ascension allowing longer exposures with telephoto lenses. To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, either a tripod Ball Head is required (not supplied) or the Dovetail L-Bracket. The Dovetail L-Bracket, used in conjunction with the optional counterweight shaft/counterweight also allows small telescopes (e.g. Maksutov 90mm), with a 1/4″-20 tripod fitting, to be used with the Star Adventurer.

A small telescope and camera (using a ball head, not supplied) can be mounted simultaneously on the Dovetail L-bracket. Using just the dovetail bar from the Dovetail L-Bracket, two cameras can be mounted at the same time using two tripod ball heads (not supplied).

In the Box:

* Star Adventurer Mount Head (Black)

* Ball head adapter

* Polar scope Illuminator for polar scope

* Adjustable Dovetail L-Bracket with Declination Fine Adjustment

* Equatorial wedge (Black)

* Counterweight shaft

* 1kg counterweight

Skywatcher Australia 5 Year Warranty included as standard (not available from all suppliers).
