- back surgury
- polar line
- build quality
I live in Chicago. Imaging stars is hard here. Follow them like your shadow does you with THIS. Instant image improvement. Polar alignment = ez. 2 minute setup.
Impressed with quality
I haven't had a chance to use it yet but just handling it, It does feel of quality and nice weight to it. I feel like I got my money worth so far..
Super happy with purchase
Ioptron skyguider pro. I’m just learning astrophotography and I love the skyguider pro. OPT shipped it quick and I got it sooner than expected. I live in Vancouver, Canada and it went smooth and quick.
IOptron SkyGuider Pro
I was able to be up and running the first night with the SkyGuider. The tracking was good for 90sec subs with 200mm lens. My only problems were with finding and framing the object. Fine adjustment was difficult. I have upgraded to a “ball head” to help solve that problem. So with a good tripod and a ball head it’s as good as it gets. Next I’ll try my ED80 in place of my Canon T3i and a guider. Very impressed with the rapid shipping and follow up by OPT. Lauren Chapple TC, Michigan
Great tool for the price
Purchased the iOptron Sky Guider Pro during the Summer of 2020. I've enjoyed the fun. Just wish we had more clear nights in S.W. Michigan. I purchased the unit with the iPolar installed which really helps me with an older body and eyes. I use it with my Canon 5DM4 and a William Optics Z61 II. I took the attached photo of NGC 7000 this past Tues early AM. There were 45 frames at 120 sec each (plus darks, bias & flat frames)
So far so good! Great build quality and easy to use.
The build quality seems excellent so far. I've only had one clear night since I got it. I was able to polar align and get 1 minute exposures no problem. The resulting image was fantastic! I'm going to try for 2 and then 3 minute exposures next time I get a clear night.
