Product Description

iOptron SkyTracker Pro Camera Mount with Polar Scope

 

Introducing The SkyTrackerTM Pro -- iOptron’s next generation camera tracking device!

New and improved from the original SkyTracker, better precision, silent tracking, a compact design, small size and a built-in rechargeable power source that runs for over 24 hours of continuous operation have been implemented with the new SkyTracker Pro from iOptron. Improved precision scope maintains a fine engraved reticle with adjustable illumination with eight brightness levels. When used in conjunction with iOptron's smart phone app, easy and accurate alignment is a piece of cake!

The four tracking rates work in both hemisphere's and consist of 1x or sidereal, 1/2x for sky and landscape, solar and lunar. iOptron added a quick slew mode with forward and reverse to quickly re-frame the observer's image without causing issues with the position of the camera.

Remarkable improvements on the alt-azimuth base have been implemented with the SkyTracker Pro. A precision bubble level and degree marking for the altitude and a built in post for the azimuth control are available. The SkyTracker Pro head without the base can also be mounted directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4" or 3/8" threads. For those astronomers and photographers who enjoy astroscape or wide field astro-imaging, this is a must have!
