The Star Adventurer Mount is an ultra portable equatorial mount ideal for small telescopes or for astrophotography with camera lenses up to 200-300mm in focal length. It fits on most astronomical, photo, or video tripods via its 3/8″ to 1/4" adapter. With a simple turn of the dial, select lunar, solar, or star tracking modes, or four speeds from 0.5x to 12x to create interesting time-lapse videos with your DSLR. Moreover, it contains pre-programmed parameters assisting your DSLR via the optional shutter release cable. The Star Adventurer mount features a Vixen-style dovetail saddle for compatible accessories and optical tube assemblies. The mount can be supplied with 4 AA batteries or via mini USB port.

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. This is a great advantage for achieving professional astronomical photos.

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″ 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).
