About the iOptron SkyTracker w/ Polar Scope - Black...
We are excited to introduce the iOptron SkyTracker Camera Mount w/ Polar Scope for astrophotography. New features include increased payload of 7.7 lbs and an adjustable AZ base. This portable mount makes it easy to take long exposures of the night sky without streaking or star trailing.
The iOptron SkyTracker Camera Mount w/ Polar Scope is simple to set up. Just attach the unit to a camera tripod. Then slide and lock your digital camera into the saddle. Align SkyTracker to Polaris, the North Star, using the included dark field illuminated polar scope. Then turn on the motor and it keeps your camera tracking at the same speed the earth rotates!
