iOptron Skyguider Pro Camera Mount Full Package

The SkyGuider Pro 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.

Portable Plug-and-Play

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!

Improved Tracking

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 reframe 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.

Main Features of the iOptron SkyGuider Pro

  • Entirely metal design for sturdiness and reliability
  • Usable in both northern and southern hemispheres
  • Rechargeable battery allows for up to 20 hours of use

A view in the sky

The iOptron sky guider performed flawlessly. I checked the web on the best way to set it up and off I was photographing the sky. My camera is Nikon D3 with a 600 mm lens. Recommended!

The skyguider pro is ok,

The skyguider pro is ok, but there are some design challenges with it. The screws in the Dec bracket hit the locking screws, forcing you to do some reconfiguring in the dark when changing Dec. Also, when using a small telescope it is impossible to balance. You can make it work, but it can be frustrating

Skyguider pro

It works as advertised. I got 5 minute exposure with no star trails using a canon 450d and a rokinon 14mm f2.8 lense

iOptron Skyguider Pro

The SGP is the acknowledged best of the camera guiders, and having used it for a couple of weeks, I agree. I considered less expensive options, but am glad that I went with SGP. It’s sturdily constructed but light weight. Does Sidereal tracking, Lunar, Solar and 1/2 Sidereal (for nightscapes with scenery. It’s been 100% accurate. It’s easy to set up, to polar align (has a built in polar scope, but, taking the advice of users on Cloudy Nights, just getting close to polar alignment is fine. Can’t think of anything I don’t like, and OPT was absolutely (as always) the best at getting it to me well packaged and quickly and no charge for shipping. All good!!!

iOptron Skyguider Pro

When Polaris is located accurately the SkyGuider Pro works like a charm. Other than the controls for adjusting the azimuth being a little difficult, I am happy with it.
