With its 11-pound payload capacity, Star Adventurer is well-equipped to handle your lighter weight equipment, from a DLSR or mirrorless camera with wide-angle or telephoto lens plus accessories, a small aperture astrograph with a dedicated astro camera, or even small OTA’s such as our Skymax series of Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. 

The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer GTi is the perfect mount for any astrophotographer who values both performance and portability.
