Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount with equatorial wedge, illuminated polar scope, dovetail L-bracket, and counter weight
The user-friendly Skywatcher Star Adventurer provides various combinations to satisfy all your needs for 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. Moreover, it contains pre-programmed parameters assisting you to create interesting time-lapse videos with your DSLR.
Star Adventurer Astro-Photo Bundle includes the Star Adventurer mount, ball head adapter, illuminated polar scope, dovetail L-bracket, equatorial wedge and counterweight shaft with 1kg counterweight. Skywatcher shutter release cables can be purchased separately for most popular camera models/brands.
The Star Adventurer can be attached to any standard tripod via its ¼” or 3/8” adapters. The latitude can be set by either adjusting the tilt of your tripod head to match your latitude or more accurately with the included equatorial wedge. To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, either a tripod ball head can be used (not supplied) or the supplied dovetail L-bracket. The dovetail L-bracket used in conjunction with the supplied counterweight shaft/counterweight also allows small telescopes (e.g. Skymax-90), with a ¼-20 tripod fitting, to be used with the Star Adventurer. By dispensing with the counterweight shaft, a small telescope and camera (using a ball head, not supplied) can be mounted simultaneously on the dovetail L-bracket. Using just the dovetail bar from the Dovetail L-bracket, two cameras can be mounted at the same time using two tripod ball heads (not supplied).
