60 minutes of mechanical tracking
MiniTrack has a clockwork heart, electronics have no place. A precision
movement accurately tracks your camera. Wind-up the MiniTrack with its
cord, like an analogue clock, and it will start tracking immediately and
continue for 60 minutes. This mount will never flag, even in freezing
conditions. Your new mount can even take a telephoto lens. It is no
coincidence that this 'expert' in wide-field photography has won the
hearts of amateur astronomers.
Like a counterweight - the powerful spring system
MiniTrack is extremely compact and needs no accessories such as a
counterweight. That is because it's already been built-in - in the form
of a spring system. As your camera starts to be tracked, the spring both
supports the weight and looks after the tracking. Take this mount in
your luggage on flights and leave your main mount at home.
Find the pole in a jiffy

Fits onto every tripod
MiniTrack has two connectors - one for the tripod and another for your
camera or ball-head. Simply attach the mount to your tripod as usual
using the 1/4" screw and align the MiniTrack as you like. Alternatively,
you can mount a ball head with the 1/4" or 3/8" thread.
