Product Details

  • The Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack is built around the Star Adventurer 2i mount. The Star Adventurer astrophotography mount is a high precision, portable, and stable celestial tracking platform for sidereal, solar, and lunar tracking. It is designed to work with your DSLR camera and includes pre-programmed parameters that will help you create beautiful images and videos. The Star Adventurer Multi-Function Mount also has an automatic DSLR shutter release control built-in.

    Sky-Watcher simplifies the astrophotography process by making the Star Adventurer 2i a complete equatorial mount package that tracks the night sky smoothly. Just align your system and activate the tracking, then you're good to go! Check out our guide on How to Use the Star Adventurer to learn how you can get started. 

    THE SKY-WATCHER STAR ADVENTURER 2i PRO PACK FEATURES

    The included Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Dec Bracket lets you attach a camera or small telescope, which can then be pointed to different Declination angles as you wish. The Dec bracket includes a motion control knob and a Dec axis locking knob. With the Dec Bracket installed, the Star Adventurer 2i becomes a functional equatorial mount, including Dec angle adjustments operating with manual control.

    The Counterweight Kit is an included accessory for the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack. The stainless steel counterweight shaft attaches to the Star Adventurer Dec Bracket very easily, and it is used to counter-balance a heavy payload.

    The Latitude Equatorial Base provides the ability to adjust the latitude and azimuth of the system for correct polar alignment. This Latitude Equatorial Base by Sky-Watcher adjusts from 0-degree latitude to 70-degree latitude. By turning the Horizontal Adjustment knob, you can make adjustments to the azimuth position. There is an included bubble level to assist in leveling the base.

    This Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2i Pro Pack can be installed on most standard photo tripods, such as the Star Adventurer Tripod or Radian Carbon Fiber Tripod, that have a 3/8" connection. If you are going to align the Star Adventurer Astro Package to the celestial pole, be sure that your photo head can tilt back far enough so that you can see the celestial pole with the included Polar Scope at your particular latitude.

Great Product so far!

I have used this 4 times so far. I love the time lapse shoot move shoot function. I have also utilized the deep space astro feature using my 70-200 2x extension with it with some cool results. Still need to learn the star stacking but this is great for people starting off in astrophotography with lots of room to grow. Looking forward to bringing this to Arizona so I will have no light pollution.

Newbie using Star Adventurer 2i

Im just a beginner to astrophotography. I have yet to take any pictures since I am learning about my camera at the same time. Fortunately there are some nice instructional videos on YouTube to help get started with this tracker. I like all the features so far and don’t have anything negative to say.

A great little mount

It is an excellent mount. I use it with the Radian 61 and Asi 2600 MC, total 3.5 kg with accessories. The key to success with this mount is the tripod. With a carbon fiber tripod it is very unstable, with the tripod of my old EQ6 pro goto (8 kG) it is totally stable, getting great results. You should sell some 4 kg tripod. This mount is perfect for small focal lengths, respecting the weight, which does not exceed 4kg and t the equipment to be placed on the mount must be perfectly balanced. I had to improve it with some accessories to gain stability and reduce weight and now it is perfect for me. An excellent purchase that allows me to travel to the skies without contamination (bortle 2-3). With my old EQ6, with 20 kg +8 of the tripod plus the rest of the equipment, it is very heavy to make long trips, with the star adventurer, I lose focal but I gain portability.

Easier to use than I thought!

I used the Sky-Watcher Pro last week to take some pictures of the Milkyway in Rocky Mountain National Park. After reading the instructions and doing a dry run at home I thought I was prepare. I was able to do a polar alignment at dusk with NO PROBLEM. It really did only take about 5 minutes once I could see polaris. Very simple to get to the right spot on the reticle. What I wasn’t prepared for was if I needed to move my tripod in the dark. I mean really dark. There were so many stars out at that stage that I honestly couldn’t tell which one was polaris!! Not wanting to waste the evening, I figured, I would just point the thing north and hope for the best. I’m happy to report that for long exposures of the Milkyway, you DO NOT need perfect polar alignment. I was probably way off and I was still getting pin point stars with upt o a 120 second exposure. I’ll use this again for the Milkyway for sure.
