SmartStarTM-PR Computerized German Equatorial Mount and Tripod system provides superior performance and stability. Ideally suited for astrophotography, the PR is built with precision worm gears and high-caliber bearings for smooth celestial tracking. Our heavy-duty two-inch stainless steel tripod means your telescope and images will not be disturbed by any bump or windy night. The PR also includes a latitude scale for easier alignment and an optional polar finder scope.
SmartStarTM-PR is fully computerized with a database of 130,000 – the most of any GoTo system on the market. The GoToNovaTM Controller is more intuitive than its peers with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 8 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.
SmartStarTM-PR is easy to balance on both axes by simply sliding the counterweights. This is very helpful when attaching a camera or other accessory. And the single contact support system allows the tube to move freely with your attached camera.
SmartStarTM-PR is universally compatible with all tubes using a dovetail connection making it useful for the hobbyist with multiple tubes. It also includes a Polar Finder scope essential for accurately aligning your PR.
