The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer is a user-friendly and multi-function mount to satisfy all your needs for astronomy, astrophotography and time-lapse photography. It is a high precision, portable and stable celestial tracking platform for sidereal, solar and lunar tracking with automatic DSLR shutter release control. Also, it contains preprogrammed parameters assisting you to create interesting time-lapse videos with your DSLR.
The Astro Package includes the Star Adventurer mount, polar scope illuminator, and dec bracket. Optional EQ base is available. OTA, tripod and counterweight kit are not included.
Note: App mode settings are saved for all modes once they're set - to get unlimited tracking afterwards (so that the mount doesn't stop tracking after the previous number of photos specified), make sure you program the app with sidereal rate and the No. of Photos box unchecked before you exit APP mode (and hit run briefly, then stop), which will allow STAR mode to rotate continuously.
