iOptron SkyGuider Pro Camera Mount Full Package

The iOptron SkyGuider Pro Camera Mount Full Package 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 re-frame 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.

Works GREAT and easy to use

Check the item carefully. Mine arrived with the camera mounting block jammed into the DEC bracket cockeyed as if it were assembled by a 5 year old. I almost couldn't get it unstuck and was going to return the whole thing. I freed it with a small mallet. Directions are fairly easy. Turn it on, align it with the North Star, mount the camera / ball head combo and snap away. First pic I took was 55 seconds at 150mm focal length and NO star movement!

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!!!

Having lower back surgury two timesI find it difficult to do the polar line up, a 90 degree angle viewer would be nice or learn how to not be a Digital ***** and get that other device. yet last night I staid up late and photod Orions Neb. creeping over the Hurricaine Cliffs with a 20 second exposure and low ISO. Result? Pretty good for first use, need to improve the polar alignment. All in all I like, it and leveled an area of my back yard to set up my tripod as an "outdoor observatory!

I have only limited time on this equipment but like it so far. I have gotten 2 minute exposures with no star streaking at 300mm. I have tried up to 5 minute exposures but star streaking is apparent. I will try again really ensuring my polar alignment is spot on to see if I can get a 5 minute exposure with no guiding.
