Astrophotography made easy

The Skywatcher Star Adventurer makes astro photography easy. It fits to all standard photo tripods. The latitude is being adjusted by the tripod´s tilting head or with the optional polar wedge.

Star Adventurer´s motto: Astro photography as easy as possible but with enogh precision for pinpoint stars.

More information:

The user-friendly Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer provides various combinations to satisfy all you 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.

The Star Adventurer can attach to any standard tripod via its 1/4" or 3/8" adaptors. The latitude can be set by either adjusting the tilt of your tripod head to match your latitude or more accurately by purchasing the optional Equatorial Wedge.

To fit a camera to the Star Adventurer, either a tripod Ball Head is required (not supplied) or the optional Dovetail L-Bracket. The optional Dovetail L-Bracket, used in conjunction with the optional counterweight shaft/counterweight, also allows small telescopes (e.g. Skymax-90), with a 1/4"-20 tripod fitting, to be used with the Star Adventurer. 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 optional Dovetail L-Bracket, two cameras can be mounted at the same time using two tripod ball heads (not supplied).

"Aus meiner Sicht ein geniales Gerät für den Einstieg. Perfekte Reisemontierung."

"Ich verwende den Kopf zum Fotografieren. Es ist einfach zu handhaben und bei genauer Poljustierung sehr genau - bin absolut zufrieden. Die Batterien halten erstaunlich lange, nur die Batterie-Abdeckung ist etwas fummelig und hält nicht so gut, aber ich kann damit leben. Die Beschreibung bestimmter Funktionen könnte besser sein (Mond/Sonne)."
