Product Details

  • The Sky-Watcher Star AdventurerĀ 2i Pro Pack is built around the Star AdventurerĀ 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 AdventurerĀ 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!Ā 

    THE SKY-WATCHER STAR ADVENTURERĀ 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 AdventurerĀ 2i becomes a functional equatorial mount, including Dec angle adjustments operating with manual control.

    The Counterweight Kit is an accessory for the Sky-Watcher Star AdventurerĀ 2i Mount. 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 AdventurerĀ 2i Astro Package can be installed on a photo tripod or other mount which has an adjustable head. 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.

Very happy

Product : Star Adventurer 2i Item was delivered quickly and was as described. Ez to put together and alignment went well. Tracking was spot on. Iā€™m struggling with the app that controls the SA2i but Iā€™m old and not technologically savvy. I canā€™t get my phone to connect to the tracker. Iā€™ll figure it out some day. It work just fine without it.

Sky Watcher Star Adventurer 2i

I got it for Christmas and it was easy to setup and use. There are some excellent YouTube videos on how to setup and align with the Polar Star. I plan on using it for astrophotography. I was able to use it the Full Moon in December and it worked great. My only issue is that firmware can only be installed from a Windows OS. I am MAC user and currently on Big Sur. I wrote to customer support group for Sky-Watcher and got a quick response, which is a plus. But at this time, there is no MAC support for firmware.

Excited to use it. Documentation is full of typos.

The instructions to update the firmware SEEM straightforward but are not.

Review after 2 years of use

I have had my Star Adventurer for 2 years now. It has worked well up to and including deep sky imaging using a guide camera. I am able to get long exposures (2 min) using an effective zoom of 650mm within +/- 4 arc seconds with autoguiding. It has been reliable and trouble free piece of equipment. Under the hood its pretty heavy duty and well built for it size. For us who need to minimize the backlash for optimal performance (deep space) the adjustments are very easy to get to. The Star Adventurer weakest link is the EQ base. Long exposure times requires accurate polar alignment. I've upgraded the base and now very pleased with both the time and accuracy of polar alignment. The second item is the illumination attachment for the polar scope. It really would be awesome if it could be inside the polar scope. But the illumination attachment is usable and does do a good gob. All things considered for the price I recommend the Sky Watcher. Its an inexpensive EQ mount that can be adapted to deep space photography so it is quite versatile.
