Product Description

iOptron SkyGuider Pro Camera Mount Full Package

Launching the iOptron The SkyGuider Pro, a state of the art camera tracking device! Following 4 years leading the camera tracker market, now iOptron has released it at near perfection!

Being more compact, smaller, more precise, more silent and built with a rechargeable power system, an included ST-4 guider port and camera trigger port, it is no secret why the new SkyGuider Pro Mount Head is a step up! The improved precision polar scope maintains a fine engraved reticule and features different brightness levels with adjustable illumination. In conjunction with the iOS app, accurate polar alignment is a piece of cake. The DEC mounting bracket allows balance of a heavy camera or lens. The optional 8408 hand controller allows the observer to verify the Pole Star position for polar alignment, mounting slewing, guiding rate adjustment, and changing the mount settings and controlling the camera trigger.

The SkyGuider ro has tracking rates of 1x or sidereal, 1/2X for sky and landscape, solar and lunar. All 4 rates work in both hemispheres. iOptron also added a quick slew mode with forward and reverse to assist in reframing the image without disrupting the camera position.

The SkyGuider Pro's removable altaz base features a precision bubble level and degree marking for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control. The SkyGuider Pro head (without the base) can also be directly mounted to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4" or 3/8" threads.

The mounting bracket package consists of a DEC mounting bracket, counterweight shaft, counterweight and Vixen-type dovetail saddle. This makes the mount suitable for heavier cameras and even lightweight telescopes. For astro-imagers interested in wide field photography, the iOptron SkyGuider is a must!
