The iOptron SkyGuider Pro Camera Mount Full Package is iOptron’s answer to the massively popular realm of DSLR astrophotography while still being perfectly equipped to handle smaller telescopes as well. Since its release, this camera tracker has been a favorite among astronomy and astrophotography communities due to its extremely compact size, ease of use, and surprisingly affordable price. All that you need to get started in wide-field astrophotography is a camera, a tripod, and the iOptron SkyGuider Pro.
Redesigned from the original blueprint, the current model of iOptron’s SkyGuider Pro is made to fit in the palm of your hand while having better tracking, more precision in alignment, and operate with near silence. This device also has a built-in power source that is rechargeable, a standard ST-4 guiding port, and a camera trigger port to streamline the whole process. Never before has getting into astrophotography been easier than it is now, thanks to iOptron. Just set it up, check your bubble level, align with the smartphone app, and you?re good to go!
Featuring a respectable four tracking rates, the SkyGuider is well-suited to most imaging sessions we could ever want. Each rate also functions in both northern and southern hemispheres with no problems at all, and, to make this even better, a quick slew mode is available for both forward and reverse directions to re-frame without disrupting the camera position.
An Adaptable System
Would you prefer to use a manufacturer’s hand controller instead of your phone to control this? That is available. Can you attach your own camera mount head to the SkyGuider Pro? Yes. One of the main qualities of iOptron is their attention to how varied customers? needs can be. This camera tracker mount is well-adapted to work with nearly every camera setup that an astrophotographer would bring out into the field.
